Scolari hails Neymar after the Seleção’s 3-1 win over Portugal
Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has hailed the impact of striker Neymar following the Seleção’s 3-1 win over Portugal.
Raul Meireles game Portugal an early lead but Neymar then made his mark by setting up Thiago Silva to equalize.
The 21-year-old then scored a superb individual goal which left Scolari purring at his display, as reported on Goal.com.
The 64-year-old state at the post match press conference: "Neymar was very good, outstanding.
"He has been playing well for three or four years now. Once in every 15 or 20 games or so he does not play at his usual level and his performance is a little bit less than normal.
"However, Neymar usually acts at the level he showed against Portugal."
The Brazil boss then went on to say that he has not made a final decision about his squad for the World Cup just yet.
He added: "There are a bunch of details that will probably make me change the way I am thinking about one player or another through injury or something else like it.
"Between the game against Australia and the match versus Portugal, I saw that I can add one or two more players to that group of 17 or 18 players that I already had. We will possibly introduce more new players to evaluate."
