“I am going to South Africa to watch the FIFA World Cup,” John told reporters here held by Castrol, the official sponsor of the World Cup 2010.
Apart from John, 29 winners of the Castrol 2010 FIFA World Cup promotion, from Feb 1 to April 15, would also be able to watch a match in South Africa with the star.
Talking about favourite teams, John said he would support Spain.
“You know, you can have favourites right now but on June 11, you will realise which team is peaking and which team is not. If everything remains fine then Spain is one of my favourite teams and I really want Spain to do well,” he said.
The 2010 FIFA World Cup will take place June 11-July 11 and it will be the 19th edition of the premier international football tournament.
“I went to Berlin last time to see the world cup final between France and Italy,” said John.
Asked about his favourite players, he said: “World Cup always gives new players. The old favourites are Lionel Messi (Argentina) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) and a lot of other players I assume are going to do well in this world cup.”
John had played a football player in “Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal” and he says he would have loved to be a professional footballer if he could re-do his career.
