Maradona backs Argentina for World Cup win against Brazil

Football legend Diego Maradona has predicted that Argentina will lift their third World Cup in Brazil next year, although to do so they will have to defeat the hosts, according to the outspoken former star.

"It is going to happen again in Brazil. Argentina will be champions of the world, but they are going to have to fight against the 'morochos' [Brazil]. They are very tough," he announced in today's interview with TyC Sports.

"The success of 1986 will be repeated and it will be in Brazil."

"Germany and Holland are in good shape, Italy not so much and Spain are getting bored of their own tactics. They go forward and forward, but cannot convert," he opined of Argentina's possible rivals.

Maradona was the Argentina coach in the nation's last World Cup campaign, which ended in defeat at the quarter-final stage. Despite that disappointment, the icon is certain that he did all he could.

"I do not regret the team I put out. That was the team. It was not the moment to put in [Juan Sebastián] Verón nor [Javier] Pastore. I was the one with the team and I knew that those players were the best," he affirmed.
