"I support Brazil" – President Mugabe

“I will support Brazil if South Africa do not make it,” he said in an interview shortly after arriving from watching SA draw against Mexico.

“I think SA might not make it to the next rounds.”

Mugabe watched the opening match and said SA had played very well. “However Mexico is a good team,” he said.

“I think if Drogba plays well, his team could also do well,” he said.

He said however he did not think Cote D Voire had the capacity to win the event this year.

“Zimbabweans can support whomever they want but I will support Brazil,” he said.
