They say self-confidence is a good thing and Edilson is certainly not short of that. The ex-Brazilian footballer says that he was better than Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar.

Few footballers and ex-players have had as much self-confidence as Edilson. The former Brazilian international said that he was a better player than many current football stars.

"I was better than Neymar. For him to be better than me, he has to be win a World Cup. The same goes for Leo Messi, for him to be better than me, he has to win a World Cup," he told 'Rede Bandeirantes'.

But Edilson had not finished there. "Cristiano only has strength, he shoots with his right and left foot, he strikes the ball well with both feet. But I'm more skilful than him," he admitted.

"I'm better than Messi, Cristiano and Neymar. Few people are capable of saying it, whether or not I'm right. And the Brazilian referred to this trophies to back up his point.

Edilson won the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan with Brazil, when they won their fifth and most recent World Cup. Since then, a European nation has always won it.

The Brazilian footballer was important in Scolari's said. He started of two of the games which featured the likes of Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Cafu.
