"Our iconic stadium will provide a ideal backdrop for such an exciting game in the run up to this summer's World Cup and we are sure that players and fans alike will have a fantastic time".

"He already has a second chance because, unfortunately, what happened in Brazil - disaster", Pele told Omnisport.

Brazilian legend Pele has all his faith in Neymar's ability to help win the sixth Global football title.

"I can not play in the next World Cup but I feel good", he said with a hearty laugh."I had an injury, then I had to make a surgery for the head of my hip, then I had to replace (it), then I had a little problem with my meniscus, but now I am OK, I am ready, in good shape!"
