Scolari Doesn't Care About Critics

The manager of the Brazilian national football team, Luiz Felipe Scolari, has said that he doesn’t care about what the critics are saying about his team.

The Brazilians have not lost a single match in the ongoing FIFA World Cup and have made their way into the semi final round of the tournament, but, still, there are some people who are not happy with their performance.

Those critics reckon that the hosts have been a bit lucky at times and they might be found wanting against stronger opponents in the remaining two rounds.

Brazil defeated Colombia by a narrow margin of 2-1 the other day to reach the Round of 4, but, the joy of that win was overcome by the sadness of Neymar getting severely injured and ruled out of the tournament.

The unavailability of the Barcelona star in the semi final against Germany is going to be a huge factor. There are very few people who would now consider Brazil as the favourite going into that match, but, one thing that everybody should keep in mind is that Brazil will have the home support and that does help teams especially in big matches.

Talking to the reporters yesterday about the criticism that his team is receiving, Scolari said, “We go into every match with proper planning and we try to execute the plan on the field up to the best of our abilities. Obviously, for different teams, there are different plans. The style of play of all the teams is not the same.”

“I don’t care what people think and say about the way we have played so far.”

The semi final match between Brazil and Germany will be played at Estadio Mineirao at Belo Horizonte. The kick off will be at 9.30 British Standard Time.
