Brazil great Pele has canceled a trip to England to watch his country play at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday because he is still recovering from hip surgery.

The English Football Association says Pele's recovery is taking longer than expected.

On the FA website, the 72-year-old Pele said: ''I will come visit England soon, and I also look forward to seeing all of you next summer here in Brazil.''

England will be playing Brazil in a friendly in Rio de Janeiro on June 2.
