Diego Maradona expects South American sides to dominate the World Cup and tips Argentina and Brazil for glory
Diego Maradona expects the World Cup to be dominated by the South American nations.
The 53 year-old, who has been out of work since leaving a managerial role at Al Wasl in July 2012, believes Argentina and Brazil are best equipped to cope with the conditions and is unconvinced Italy, Netherlands and Spain can go all the way.
“I see the World Cup being an all-South American affair, because the European teams tend to struggle in exotic locations,” he said to Pibe de Oro, as reported by Football Italia.
“Brazil and Argentina have the players to win the title, but I don’t know whether Spain and Holland can repeat themselves.
“I saw Italy play recently and they have some good players, but I don’t think they are among the favourites.
