Argentine legend Diego Maradona said Sunday that Brazil would be the top favorite to win the World Cup in Germany.
Maradona, who is attending a Carnival parade in Rio de Janeiro, made the comments in an interview with the local media.
"Brazil is the most prepared team, it has a top coach and its players are already used to winning," the former Argentine star said.
Maradona admitted that Argentina also has the chance to win the title, but "a lot has to happen at the right moments for that to happen".
The World Cup begins on June 9. Brazil is in Group F with Croatia, Australia and Japan, while its South American rival is in Group C with the Netherlands, Serbia-Montenegro and Cote D'Ivoire.
