Liverpool FC today confirmed that Anfield will host Brazil v Croatia in an worldwide friendly on June 3, 2018, kick-off 3pm.
The Selecao played all three of their World Cup 1966 group games at neighbouring Goodison Park, which was also the venue for their 1995 clash with Japan in the Umbro Cup.
The 77-year-old suspects there could be some surprises in store, though, given the shock of Italy's failure to qualify for the tournament.
Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer of Liverpool Football Club, said: "We are delighted to welcome two world-class teams to Anfield".
In the past, Anfield has previously played host to prestigious sporting events such as the 2016 Four Nations Rugby League final, and Super League and World Cup Challenge fixtures. "But football is a box of surprises and it's hard to say". Pele who is marking 60th anniversary of his first world cup triumph noted that is normal to reel out big names as favorites ahead of any world cup but observed that the element of surprises can not be wished away.
"Then you have some surprises". Tite is a very good coach, but he doesn't yet have the team working together.
Croatia and Brazil will meet in a friendly on 3 June 2018 at Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC in England, at 3 pm local time. Then you have two or three great teams who didn't qualify.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of Pele's first World Cup triumph and the former Santos forward still remembers the emotion of being called up to the squad as a 17-year-old. He said "no, no, no, it's not a joke, it's true".
