Scolari quotes during the presser: “Whether you disagree on a few players won’t matter, I ask all Brazilians to support the squad no matter who the names are.” “I reached conclusions, and I know some will not agree with me. But it’s my decision in the end.”
“Henrique? He’s a player that I trust and I like his football. It’s my decision.” “Henrique is the last player who I have selected. I thought very well about my decision, and I trust the player.”
“In 2002 I slept at the hotel, this time I arrived in the airport this morning. It’s easier to escape the journalists.”
“It’s only a coincidence that most players I chose play in Europe. I didn’t mean it, I just chose the players I want.”
On Brazil’s main rivals, “World Cup main rivals? Our principle rival at the moment is Croatia.”
