Luiz Felipe Scolari: "This is our World Cup"
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has sent a clear and concise message to the country's 200 million residents ahead of the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup- that his squad are ready to deliver on a national dream and win an unprecedented sixth global crown.
The man who guided Selecao to their last triumph in 2002 in Japan and South Korea, told reporters: "To all Brazilians, I want to tell you that the time has arrived."
"This is our World Cup."
"There are seven steps. We have to go up those seven steps but to start we have got to think of the first step. We cant's jump the seven steps."
"The first step is against Croatia. After that we have six steps that we want to go up if we want to win the World Cup."
Scolari has overseen a change in style and results since taking over from predecessor Mano Menezes last year.
