RIO DE JANEIRO - Brazil legend Pele was quick to cast aside his country's 7-1 World Cup rout at Germany's hands yesterday, saying the Selecao would deliver in Russia in 2018.

"We'll get the sixth title in Russia. Congratulations to Germany," Pele wrote on his Twitter feed.

"I always said that football is a box of surprises. Nobody in this world expected this result," said Pele, who played in three World Cup-winning Brazil teams.
