Luiz Felipe Scolari asks the media ‘is everything bad because of one result?’

Scolari has received a lot of criticism this week - Action Images

Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari wouldn’t be drawn on his future in Friday’s press conference to preview the third/fourth place play-off match.

The host nation face Netherlands this evening in the penultimate game of the 2014 World Cup looking to sign off with a win.

Speculation has centered on the future of the Brazil boss this week after the humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany, with many expecting him to depart his role once the tournament concludes.

Scolari was quoted by RTE Sport and asked whether one match should decide his future.

"The first phase of my job finishes on Saturday,” the Brazil boss told the media yesterday.

"After that I will prepare my report and then I will talk with the presidents.

“They will look at what was right and what was wrong in what I did, but I know in the last year and a half we had several good situations.”

Scolari did concede that he was ashamed of the semi-final defeat but still wants to remain as Brazil head coach.

He added: "We have to be ashamed of the 7-1. It was a catastrophe, but I have to ask the media - is everything bad because of one result?"
