Brazil vs Germany: Rampant Germany crush Brazil 7-1 to reach World Cup final. If it was a carnage, a massacre, an annihilation and all the death-inducing adjectives that the composed and prepared Europeans inflicted on them, it must be pointed out that it was Brazil who had ordered the firing squad themselves and provided for the ammunition. Germany scored seven goals in a single game here. In South Africa, Spain won the World Cup with the just one more -- eight goals. A late Oscar goal brought some late cheer but angry and shocked tears flowed freely at the Estadio Minerao. In Belo Horizonte on Tuesday, Ronaldo just lost his goal-scoring record to Miroslav Klose, but Brazil lost more than a football match. It lost face, which recovering would take a good half-century or more. Until the next Maracanazo would come along, the Minerazo would stand, for unfortunately this Brazil side under the sweet-talking, ever-sure Luis Felipe Scolari - who had claimed that he had not even a drop of doubt for this defence ...

Panic on the streets of Rio? Brazil getting nervous After another disappointing performance, the Brazil camp are desperately trying not to panic at their World Cup. DON'T PANIC After Brazil failed to beat Mexico on Tuesday night, delivering their second lacklustre performance of the competition so far, the prevailing message from the Selecao camp seems to be ‘don’t panic.’ “We wanted the victory, obviously, but you have to respect your opponents and Mexico are a very good side,” said Luis Felipe Scolari after the match, in which Brazil struggled to break down the Mexican defence, featuring a Gordon Banksian performance from goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, which striker Fred said contained "at least four miracles." "What we made clear in the locker room is that the important thing is to win and the second is not to lose," winger Bernard told Brazilian newspaper O Globo. "We went into the game knowing that a draw would not be a bad result." But Bernard felt that at times Brazil were not as confident o ...
Vicente Del Bosque and Luis Felipe Scolari look like they could be brothers
BARCELONA and Brazil superstar Neymar said he was looking forward to the realization of a childhood dream Wednesday after being confirmed in his country's World Cup squad. The 22-year-old, who helped propel the Selecao to last year's Confederations Cup, will be playing in his first World Cup and said he could already taste the excitement. “This is the realization of a dream I have had since I was a child,” Neymar said on social media after Luis Felipe Scolari named him in his 23-man squad. “I don't doubt this is one of the happiest days of my life. I've always been chasing my dreams and this was always one of my main ones -- not just to represent my family but ALL BRAZIL. “I thank God for this opportunity, this gift,” said the youngster, who joined Barca from Pele's old side Santos last year but who has had a mixed time of it to date at the Nou Camp. “I am emotional, anxious, nervous, just waiting for the day to arrive,” he said. Centre forward Fred, who dovetailed to great effect with Neyma ...
Luis Felipe Scolari has left Miranda, Philippe Coutinho, Lucas Moura and Robinho out of his Brazil squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. There had been speculation Miranda, who has been in outstanding form for Atletico Madrid, would receive his first international call-up in over a year, but Scolari opted to name Napoli's Henrique as his fourth center back. "He's a player I have a lot of trust in," Scolari said of Henrique. Fellow defenders Dede, Filipe Luis, Marquinhos, Rafinha and Rever were left disappointed, as was Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva. The latter's Anfield teammate Coutinho has been in superb for this season, but Scolari elected to include just two attacking midfielders in Chelsea pair Oscar and Willian. The 65-year-old called Rafinha and Fernandinho up for the first time for Brazil's most recent friendly – the 5-0 win in South Africa in March – but while the Manchester City midfielder retained his place, Inter veteran Maicon was preferred to the Bayern Munich man. Scolari, who included ...

Group A Five-time winners and hosts Brazil have been drawn in group A alongside Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon. Luis Felipe Scolari's side opens their campaign with a tough fixture against the Croats who reached the 2014 finals after a playoff victory over Iceland. Group B Defending champions Spain have been drawn in a tricky group with slick attacking side Chile, Australia and fellow European heavyweights the Netherlands. Vicente Del Bosque's side would have hoped for an easier first round after the Dutch cruised to victory in their qualifying group and the Chileans were impressive in South American qualifying. Whoever finishes as runner up is likely to face Brazil in the second round. Group C Colombia are the seeded team in group C and have a favourable group co ...

Lucas - Fighting for a World Cup Place. Having missed the majority of the 2011-12 season - and three months of the 2012-13 campaign - through injury, Lucas Leiva is quickly making up for lost time in a bid to go to the World Cup. The defensive midfielder has been a consistent presence for Premier League surprise package Liverpool this season, featuring in all but two of the Anfield club's games so far. And his form has been recognised by Luis Felipe Scolari, who brought the 26-year-old off the bench in a win over South Korea, before handing him a start and a full 90 minutes in the 2-0 victory against Zambia. Lucas is back in the Brazil squad for upcoming games against Honduras and Chile, as the World Cup hosts continue their world tour prior to staging the competition next summer. Lucas faces competition for a place from Luiz Gustavo and Fernando of Shakhtar Donetsk, but his upbringing at Gremio - a club very familiar to Scolari - could help him secure a place in the final squad for the tournament on *** ...
Brazil 3-0 Spain: Spain unable to cope with Brazil’s pace and power on the break July 1, 2013 The starting line-ups Brazil won the Confederations Cup at the Maracana after a convincing demolition of the world champions. Luis Felipe Scolari stuck with his usual side – in five games he only deviated from this XI once, when Paulinho wasn’t 100% fit for the final group game. Vicente Del Bosque brought in Juan Mata on the left of his 4-3-3 system, but otherwise the side was unchanged. Brazil yet again started superbly – but Spain failed to mount a significant fightback. Brazil press The key feature at the start of the game was Brazil’s pressing – they started the match at a very high tempo, and refused to let Spain settle on the ball inside their own half. This early burst has been a common feature of their matches at this tournament, and has been crucial in them taking early leads – they scored in the third minute against Japan, in the ninth minute against Mexico, and went ahead after two minute ...
Luis Felipe Scolari believes Brazil's chances of winning the WC have improved after reaching the Confeds final:
Neymar believes that Spain are favourites to win this year's Confederations Cup as hosts Brazil remain a side in transition. - Cruyff: Jury still out on Neymar June's tournament is seen as the only competitive test for Luis Felipe Scolari's squad to gel ahead of the 2014 World Cup, which is also being held on home soil. The new Barcelona signing told Spanish TV station Cuatro that La Roja - who feature his new club team-mates, including Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas and Gerard Pique - are ahead of his own country in terms of development at present. "Spain plays the best football in the world at the moment," Neymar said. "Their players have spent years playing together, while in Brazil we are going through a process of change. We are getting used to each other and I hope we can play a great tournament." The 21-year-old said he had agonised long and hard over the decision to leave Santos and join Barca. "I have had days and months going crazy, but now it is over," Neymar said. "I am much mor ...
