Cafu respect for Schweinsteiger


Cafu is especially impressed with midfielder Schweinsteiger.

"Germany have a strong team who have performed well recently. Along with Brazil they're among the favourites," Cafu told Kicker.

"What impresses me most is Bastian Schweinsteiger. He is a complete player who has been an enormous help to his team, Bayern." 

He added of the versatile Lahm: "He is really fantastic. He is just as good on the right as on the left. He's a player that every coach would like to have on their team."  

The 44-year-old Cafu, who represented the likes of AC Milan and Roma, skippered the Samba Boys to a 2-0 victory over Germany in the final of the 2002 World Cup.
