Brazilian football legend Pele has declined to say who will win today’s World Cup final but stated “Germany are a lot better than Argentina.”
Pele, who arrived on Saturday in Rio to attend the final at the Maracana, told the Brazilian TV channel SporTV that football can deliver surprises, like Brazil’s 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semi-finals.
“Only God knows what happened there. The final will bring together two excellent teams. Germany are a lot better than Argentina, but anything can happen in a match, as was the case with Brazil, something that no one can explain,” he said.
“I played four World Cups, I won three titles, and thank God I never had a surprise like that (Germany semi-final defeat).”
