The Brazil coach has not yet informed the 23 men who will seek to win to win Brazil's sixth world title and that even his deputy Carlos Alberto Parreira was still in the dark.

"I have no doubts, but I have to wait for the leagues that are under way to end. You never know what might happen," said Scolari at the São Judas Tadeu University in São Paulo after a conference on psychology and football on Thursday.

"It's not a secret if two people know, not even if one of them is your wife."

"You won't see any surprises. If you make your own list you'll get 22 of them right."

Scolari is due to announce his squad in Rio de Janeiro on May 7.

The 65-year-old said he was not at all worried about Neymar's struggles with Barcelona. Despite being superb for Brazil, scoring 30 goals in 47 appearances, the 22-year-old has struggled this season with a Barcelona team going through an uncharacteristically rocky phase.

"Neymar is always fine," Scolari said.

"It's his team that's not doing well and he's part of that group. At international level, he will be as good as he always is."

"I see him very differently from the way some Spanish critics see him. I have no worries about him. None. Zero."
