Luiz Felipe Scolari demands more from his Brazil team after Panama victoryScolari wants more from his charges
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has called on his players to improve, despite brushing aside Panama 4-0 in an international friendly in Goiania last night.
A comfortable evening's work was made more laborious than it had to be by the World Cup hosts, and Scolari told the gathering press after the game: "I still have concerns, but not at the same level I had on Sunday."
"We did now allow our opponents the opportunity to counter attack and that is what I need to see because our team has the quality to score one or two goals."
"If we do not allow our opponents easy counter attacks, we have a chance to win games by even more. We improved, but we still have a long way to go."
The Brazilians' preparations for the World Cup come to a head this Friday with a friendly in Sao Paulo versus Serbia, before getting the tournament underway a week tomorrow in the same city with a game against Croatia.
