Pele congratulates South American rivals Argentina

Brazil football great Pele congratulated traditional South American rivals Argentina on reaching the World Cup final.

"Congratulations Argentina for today's big victory," Pele posted on Twitter after their 4-2 shoot-out victory over the Netherlands sets up a final at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday against Germany.

"I am looking forward to being at Maracana on Sunday to watch the final between two great nations of football!" Pele said.

It is not known if Argentina football great Diego Maradona - with whom Pele has had a personal rivalry over the years - will attend the game. While Argentina play Germany in Sunday's final, Brazil now meet the Netherlands on Saturday in Brasilia in the match for third place.
