Scolari: Brazil's lineup will change against Russia


Brazil's manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has announced that there will be changes in Brazil's line-up for the game against Russia.

The former Palmeiras boss thinks the team showed improvement, he said: "I noticed more than anything a big evolution, it's important to point out that it was the second game, we didn't even know how to play in the first one. I liked the performance, despite conceding two goals".

Felipão added that there will not be many changes for the game against Russia: "we will have few changes, two or three at most, but the system will be the same".

He added that Thiago Silva will be back to the starting line-up: "I selected Dante because he is playing in a regular basis, while Thiago Silva played only two times since he returned [from injury], but he will be a starter against Russia".

Scolari was asked if Kaká might start, but he has not decided yet, he said "maybe, but I can't guarantee anything yet, we'll see".

The manager also praised the performance against Italy, he said "I liked in general, especially the tactical aspect. Despite the ups and lows, the team did well and showed progress. I have to insist, we need to be ready, and that's the path. The team conceded goals but did not lose their cool, they played football. The goals we conceded were strange, but we did well, in general".
