SOUNDBITE (English) PELE SAYING: "For Brazil it was good that Colombia doesn't fight to be one of the countries to host the World Cup in 2014, because Brazil becomes alone. We must be prepared because Africa has a little problem because everybody fights and everybody worked hard to see the World Cup in Africa and then it's a little complicated, the situation there, because we have only three years until the next World Cup and Africa still has a little problem. I hope Brazil will be prepared because today to organise a World Cup is very expensive, it's very difficult because it's 32 countries, it's not so easy. "The people of Brazil are crazy to see the World Cup there but always I have something in my mind I remember Brazil in the past. A lot of young Brazilian fans think that if you play the World Cup in Brazil, Brazil will win the World Cup, that's not 100 percent right, because Brazil was a favourite in 1950 and nobody expected Brazil to lose the game, we lost the game in Brazil against Uruguay in 1950. Be prepared because the World Cup is a box of surprises." PELE SIGNING AUTOGRAPH SOUNDBITE (English) PELE SAYING: "Oh yes to him I don't know if it's a good choice but for America it's a fantastic promotion. He could help the same as myself, (Franz) Beckenbauer, Carlos Alberto and Georgio Chinaglia when we were all at the end of our career we promoted football in the United States. Then I think George Best was in L.A. at the same team where (David) Beckham is going to play, I hope he can help a lot though." PELE SIGNING BOOK SOUNDBITE (English) PELE SAYING: "It's a shame because (Diego) Maradona two years ago opened a programme, a talk show, I was there to help him with the first programme. At that time he was very well, he had recovered, and then unfortunately now he's back in hospital. It's difficult to say exactly what happened because before it was drugs and now the doctors say it's alcohol. I don't know exactly what happened but I feel very sorry for him being in hospital."
