Pele is hoping his beloved Brazil will face an African side in the final of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ as the tournament arrives on the continent for the first time.

"I hope that Brazil meet an African side in the final - whichever African side - as that would be stupendous," said the Brazil legend.

Pele does, however, expect European champions Spain to make the final match. "Brazil are the strongest team along with Spain," he said.
