Scolari targets World Cup victory

Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed that he is targeting a win at the 2014 World Cup as he prepares for his first international since his return to the Seleção setup.

The 64-year-old named stars such as Neymar and Ronaldinho in his first squad to take on England at Wembley in two weeks time.

The former Chelsea boss also revealed he is confident Brazil can claim their sixth World Cup on home soil in 2014, despite high expectations from Brazil supporters.

"We have placed our bets on a World Cup win and that is what we are working towards," he said. "The supporters are right to demand it.

"I want what everyone else wants, which is that they play the football they are capable of playing."

Talking about Neymar and Ronaldinho, Scolari said: "Few can play the game better than them. I also want good behaviour. I want them to be responsible, regardless of their age."

Finally, Scolari expressed his preference for a defined striker at the top of his formation, although he has not ruled out the setup used under Mano Menezes' reign.

"I always like to have a stronger type of player in the penalty area," he said. "But that doesn't mean to say we can't change in the future and not have a fixed striker."
