Luiz Felipe Scolari is aware of Brazil’s World Cup expectations
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari accepts only victory will suffice at next summer’s World Cup.
The 64 year-old, who led the Seleção to glory in 2002, understands and accepts the expectations of the Brazilian public.
“If you asked any Brazilian if they would take finishing second, nobody would say yes. And if no-one accepts it then we’re only thinking about working to finish first,” he said, as reported by AS.
After a slow start, Brazil are in a good run of form under Scolari. Only England and Switzerland have beaten them this year. The Confederations Cup victory, in June, has led to the hosts being labelled as favourites for next summer’s tournament.
Following victories against South Korea and Zambia, Brazil are back in action again next month. They face Honduras in Miami on November 16, before a tie with Chile in Toronto three days later.
