Kuwait hosts Brazil in a friendly

Five-time World Cup champion Brazil plays Kuwait on Saturday in a friendly match.
FC Barcelona's Ronaldinho, the world player of the year, and AC Milan midfielder Kaka will play for top-ranked Brazil against Kuwait, ranked 71st.
"It is the wish of every player to play with them," Kuwait coach Saleh Zakaria said.
Pele is expected among the 25,000 sellout crowd at the Kuwait Sports Club.
The match starts at 10 p.m. local time (1900 GMT). The late kickoff is due to the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk.
"Kuwait wants it to be one of the main events of this year," said Mario Graca Roiter, Brazil's ambassador to this small oil-rich state. "Kuwaitis are absolutely crazy about football."
Brazil also plays Ecuador next Tuesday in Stockholm, Sweden.
