Luiz Felipe Scolari wants Argentina in the World Cup final
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has admitted that he'd love to be involved in a Brazil versus Argentina World Cup final come July 13, after talking to reporters at a national training camp.
Scolari, who lifted the trophy as boss in 2002, said: "I don't have to worry about Argentina, I hope we can make it a Brazil-Argentina final, a South American final, with players that have great technical ability."
"I don't want Argentina to drop out beforehand. I want them to play their best football. If they lose, it's not my problem. My problem is Brazil. I have to take Brazil to the final, taking on whoever stands in our way."
Brazil's first target is to escape Group A, containing Croatia, Cameroon and Mexico; the tournament starts in six days' time against the former of these three countries.
