Brazil star Rivaldo is aiming to win the World Cup and be named as the tournament's best player.
The Barcelona playmaker has scored five goals in Korea and Japan and could be key to Brazil's chances of winning a fifth title when they take on Germany on Saturday.
He is one of 10 players who have been put forward for Fifa's Golden Ball award as the competition's best player.
"First of all I want to be a world champion but if I could also win this prize it would be a great honour," he said.
"The World Cup title is my principal goal. I know what that represents for all the players, for the Brazilian people and for my career."
Rivaldo is aiming to make up for the disappointment of the 1998 final, when Brazil were hammered 3-0 by France.
"In 1998, I played very well but we didn't win," Rivaldo said.
And he is confident Brazil can prevail this time around. "We can score against Germany," he promised.
"We have scored 16 goals so far and although Germany have conceded only one, we hope to score more.
"We respect Germany but we are determined to win and are confident that wecan win.
"Either of these two teams have the tradition to be world champions. But Ihope that we score the first goal as, if we do that, it would be a goodfoundation for the match."
Rivaldo added it was especially satisfying that the team had proved their doubters wrong.
"Many people would say that Brazil were not in a good shape before thetournament and that the squad was not among the favourites," he said.
"But while we came through our group, many of the teams who did great thingsin the past and were among the favourites were knocked out.
"Nobody spoke of Brazil, we were very quiet and working on our own game. Butwe have still made the final and now we want to win the title."
