Brazil not yet World Cup favourites: Scolari

Jul 1 2013, 2:38am CDT | by

Rio de Janeiro, July 1 (IANS) Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says his team is not yet the favourite to win next year's football World Cup despite its comprehensive 3-0 victory over Spain in the Confederations Cup final.

Rio de Janeiro, July 1 — Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says his team is not yet the favourite to win next year's football World Cup despite its comprehensive 3-0 victory over Spain in the Confederations Cup final.

Victory in the World Cup warm-up tournament here Sunday guarantees Brazil will rise sharply from their current position of No. 22 when the next FIFA rankings are announced, reports Xinhua.

"The result gives us great confidence, because it shows we can match the best teams in the world. But we still have areas where we know we need to improve," Scolari said during his post-match press conference here at the Maracana.

"We have beaten France, Uruguay, Italy and Spain in the past month, all previous World Cup winners. But there are other teams who we are yet to play like Germany and Argentina that are going to be very tough to be beat."

Scolari did not rule out the possible return of veterans Kaka and Ronaldinho at next year's World Cup, despite the pair having been overlooked for the Confederations Cup.

"The door is always open for great players," the 64-year-old said. "We will look at all of our players in Europe and the rest of the world over the next year. They will be well received if and when we call on them. The team is open to all."

Alexandre Pato: Where Did Brazil Striker's Career Take a Wrong Turn?

Jul 25 2014 4:44am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Since Brazil's capitulation at the hands of Germany over two weeks ago now, theories have been rife as to what needs to be done to repair the damage to the nation's reputation. Who needs to be brought in, and how the best can be gained from what is generally considered a limited crop of international-class players to choose from. The first step has at least been taken, with Dunga being handed the manager's job for a second time. His first test will be on September 5, ...

This is not a nightmare, Brazilian fans: Dunga has really been officially presented as the new Brazil manager. With Luiz Felipe Scolari resigning (before he was royally sacked) in the wake of Brazil’s horror-show World Cup, the notion of Dunga resuming charge of the Seleção must have seemed like a bad joke a week ago, but it’s come to pass. The 1994 World Cup winning-captain and coach during the 2010 Worl ...
