Brazil boss Scolari angered by van Gaal claims

Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has hit back at claims from Netherlands counterpart Louis van Gaal that the hosts have been favoured by the scheduling at this World Cup, reports the Guardian.

On Sunday, van Gaal claimed that Brazil were given an advantage by FIFA due to the fact they play their final round of group matches after his side play Chile in a game which decides who finishes top of Group B. The 62-year-old thinks it has given Brazil the opportunity to choose their second round opponents.


Scolari’s side take on a Cameroon side that has already been eliminated, and only defeat would see them in danger of missing out on the knockout stages. In response to van Gaal’s claims, Scolari said: “We have to win. Some people sometimes make comments without understanding things, saying we’re going to choose our opponents; either they’re stupid or ill-intended. Fifa chose the schedule.


‘When people say Brazil can choose their opponents, they put us in a very difficult situation, it’s disrespectful towards Cameroon and I don’t like it. I don’t have to choose my opponent, I have to play and win.”
