Brazil's President plans for World Cup Final

BRASILIA, Brazil -- President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is he's so confident of Brazil's chances in the World Cup that he is already planning to be at the final on July 11.

“I'm so optimistic that when I was in Mexico with President (Felipe) Calderon and he asked me if I was going to the opening game of the World Cup, I said I'm not going to the opener — I'm going to the final,” Silva said in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Of course, Silva said he would have to attend the final match in Johannesburg anyway — at least for ceremonial reasons — since Brazil will be the host country for the 2014 World Cup.
