Luiz Felipe Scolari demands more from his Brazil team after Panama victory
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.
