12/04 10:43 CST Ahead of World Cup game, Brazil coach recalls meeting Pel Ahead of World Cup game, Brazil coach recalls meeting Pel DOHA, Qatar (AP) --- Brazil coach Tite recalled his emotional first meeting with Pel, and sent the soccer great well-wishes Sunday ahead of Brazil's game against South Korea at the World Cup. Tite said Pel, who has been hospitalized with a respiratory infection in Brazil, was the only person who ever made him nervous before they were introduced. "I was shaking, my hand was sweating, my heart started beating faster," Tite said without revealing when the meeting took place. "I was about to have the opportunity to hug Pel." The 82-year-old Pel, who had a colon tumor removed last year, is undergoing treatment for his infection and said he was feeling "strong." "Get well, Pel," Tite said. Brazilian fans showed their support for the soccer great during the national team's 1-0 loss to Cameroon on Friday, displaying banners and flags with his image at Lusail Stadium. Other tributes were expected before and during Monday's match against South Korea in the round of 16. Pel helped Brazil win three World Cup titles. The five-time champions are trying to win their first World Cup title since 2002. ___ AP World Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/world-cup and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
