Scolari: Korea win better than expected
Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari praised opponents South Korea after his side earned a hard-fought 2-0 victory at the World Cup Stadium in Seoul.
A curling Neymar free kick and a superb finish from Oscar was enough to earn the Confederations Cup champions their ninth victory in their last 10 games.
And Scolari was pleased with the way his team reacted to a spirited performance from the Taegeuk Warriors, reports Goal.com.
“The result was better than expected,” he said.
“We had difficulties but overcame them really well. South Korea have quality. They were very impressive in the last 20 minutes.
“They were also very good early in the game. I think they were defensive. Maybe Brazil just wanted to play football and South Korea tried a little too hard to impress. They conceded twice many fouls as us.”
