Decision soon on Scolari

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says he will find out in the coming days whether he will keep his job, despite leading the country through a disappointing World Cup campaign.

The home fans made their displeasure towards the coach and his players clear at the final whistle after the 3-0 defeat by Holland by booing them off the pitch. But just as he did following the 7-1 thrashing against Germany, Scolari did not resign.

When asked whether he thought he remained the right man for the job, Scolari (above) said: "That has to be decided by the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation.

"We agreed before this tournament that we would give our positions at the end of the World Cup. I will finish my report and the president and the board will analyse it and do as they wish."

It was the first time that Brazil had suffered consecutive home defeats since 1940. - PA Sport.
