African football legend Abedi Pele has picked 2014 World Cup host Brazil and Germany among favourites to win the tournament.

The South American giants have reached the second round of the competition after thrashing Cameroon in their final group game while Germany will define their fate with a last Group game against the United States on Thursday afternoon.

Brazil remain among the bookmakers favourites for the title while European trio Netherlands, France and Germany are also considered as potential title-winners.

However, Abedi has picked host Brazil and Germany as his favourites though he also mentioned Argentina, France and Italy to put in strong challenge for the title.

“Like I said, Germany are going to go a very long way and I also see Brazil, who are going to get even better yet, and because Neymar could be one of the big stars of this World Cup,” he told Bundesliga.com.

The same goes for Argentina because I think Lionel Messi is getting better and better and he’ll soon be back to his very best. And then there are Italy, France and the Netherlands who could challenge for the title. I get the feeling that anything could happen at this World Cup, and there are going to be quite a few more surprises yet.”

Abedi’s country, Ghana are also in the competition with his two sons – Jordan and Andre Ayew playing pivotal roles for the West Africans.

    Say something nice to someone and you will win his favor. Abedi is motivating the Germans to beat the US. Smart guy!

    Carpo di carpi you are right. Now the problem is living in his home and this how he can atleast help to cure it before Ghanaians destroy his sons career with their mouth. If you are tagged as a potential winner then must show by winning all your matches like the Netherlands which implies they must win the US match.
