Argentine soccer national team's coach Diego Maradona said Monday his team will defeat Brazil on Sept. 5, at the South American eliminatory for the World Cup South Africa 2010, by saying his team has "better players".

"We are going to win over Brazil because we have better players. By winning over them, we will show all the good we have as a group," Maradona said.

During an interview with radio station FM Palermo, Maradona also said he was "not able to be constant" as Lionel Messi, Barcelona from Spain player, "Lionel has done the stages faster than me, he has not had serious injures. When I was playing for Barcelona I got hepatitis and I broke my ankle," Maradona said.

Messi will be part of the squad to face Brazil in Rosario, 300km to Buenos Aires.

The current standings is led by Brazil with 27, followed by Chile with 26, Paraguay with 24 and Argentina with 22.
