Luiz Felipe Scolari tends Brazil resignation
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has indeed tended his resignation to the CBF as expected, following their elimination in the Semi Final of the World Cup.
The 65 year-old, who has just lead his country for a second time, is believed to have avoided the sack by offering to go immediately, and an announcement on the decision from Brazil's goverrning body is expected to follow.
During his second spell in charge, Scolari won 19 out of 29 matches, with his biggest achievement probably coming in the shape of the Confederations Cup, which Brazil won on home soil last year in impressive fashion.
The 2014 World Cup was a different story, however; complaints about squad selection, poor performances and a perceived lack of the traditional Brazilian values of flair and swagger left the hosts unable to answer the questions posed by better teams.
And World Cup winners Germany certainly put the nail in Scolari's coffin by trouncing them 7-1 in Belo Horizonte last week, dishing out Brazil's worst ever scoreline in the tournament.
He should perhaps, though, be remembered as the man who got a very average Brazilian side into the last four of their home World Cup.
