Scolari can win second World Cup, insists Roberto CarlosCan Scolari repeat the heroics of 2002?
Should Brazil triumph on home soil at the World Cup later this year, coach Luiz Felipe Scolari would join an exclusive club of men to have won the tournament as boss on two occasions. So rare, in fact, that it has only happened once before- Vittorio Pozzo guided Italy to consecutive trophies in 1934 and 1938.
World Cup-winning defender Roberto Carlos has backed his former boss to join Pozzo by doubling up on glory at this year's tournament, in an interview with Metro Jornal.
"Brazil always has great quality. Scolari arrived and managed to impose a character and style on the team."
"He knows the players, knows what it takes to be champions. The 'family' is working with him and the players understand that."
"These are very important details to have a good World Cup."
Carlos, 40, won the tournament in 2002 and the Brazil legend, famed for his elaborate free-kicks, amassed a huge 125 caps for the Selecao.
