Luiz Felipe Scolari discusses the areas Brazil need to improve on
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari addressed the media today ahead of his country’s final World Cup warm up match against Serbia, and he revealed they are close to peak condition.
The 65-year-old feels they are 95 per cent ready to play the number of matches scheduled between tomorrow and the World Cup final on 13 July.
Lance quoted the Brazil coach, he said: “(Individualised physical work) continues to be necessary until such time that they usually balance out.
“We are almost ready. They are 95% able to play the matches from day 6 (June) to day 13 (July).”
Scolari also pinpointed set pieces as an important element of Brazil’s game that needs working on.
The 2002 World Cup winning manager feels they don’t threaten enough from set pieces and is looking to put that right between now and 12 June, when they kick off the World Cup against Croatia.
“We have to improve the set pieces for and against,” Scolari insisted.
“The goals are not coming from our corners. There is a lack of further attention.
“That lack of movement synchrony, that's what we have to work on from the game with Serbia up until the Croatia match.”
