Luiz Felipe Scolari wants Brazil to move on from Germany
As the dust settles on Brazil's nightmare World Cup exit, head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has called on the team to move on from a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Germany, as the third-place play-off looms large.
A game with Holland may be just what Scolari's men need in order to erase part of the pain of a Semi Final disaster, and the boss told reporters yesterday: "I know my career will be marked by this defeat but we have an obligation to move on."
"I know it (the play-off) is a much smaller dream than we all wanted but we have to honour the shirt of the national team."
"The tournament was not all bad. We had a bad defeat."
"After thr World Cup we will submit a report to the board of the CBF where you will see the good and the bad that we did and then it depends on the direction."
"History will have to record that Brazil, for the first time since 2002, reached the semi-finals."
