“Brazil is preparing to host an amazing event. It’s a great opportunity to show how welcoming we are,” said the 37-year-old.
“The perfect end would be Brazil and Germany. 2002 was a great final. It was beautiful. We beat the Germans and ever since they have been hoping for a rematch. With it being in Brazil, I think we will win the World Cup,” he declared.
