“He sniffs the danger quite well. He is a good passer. He scored an amazing goal against Switzerland as well and he is a very important piece for the Brazilian national team.
“He is one of the leaders there, and you can see that, and you can feel that and, yeah, I hope he can bring the sharpness back on the United field as well.
“But he's doing a very good job at the World Cup, yes."
Schweinsteiger has been impressed by several teams at this year’s edition but thinks the Selecao are poised to end their 20-year wait for another global honour.
"For me, when I saw live the Brazilian national team, I must say they looked very, very sharp.
“They played very well with the ball and also I was really surprised, positively surprised about their backline. How they defend, especially [Eder] Militao, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva and of course, in front of them sitting, Casemiro was like doing a great job there.
“I mean, they look very sharp. I think that’s the team to beat."
