Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has admitted that some of his players are beginning to feel nervous as the World Cup progresses, BBC Sport has reported.

The hosts take on Chile in the opening second round match on Saturday, with the players set to be put under increasing pressure to succeed by the supporters and the Brazilian media, and Scolari has revealed that it has begun to affect some members of his squad.


Speaking ahead of the game against their South American rivals, Scolari said: "It is normal for us to be anxious, especially now in the knockout stage where we cannot lose. We become more afraid, more nervous. It is normal. Not because it is in Brazil, but because it is a World Cup."


The former Chelsea boss also named Chile as a ‘pain’ to play against, and when asked about comments by their star man Alexis Sanchez suggesting that Brazil could be favoured by referee Howard Webb, Scolari’s press officer Rodrigo Paiva intervened, stating: "Talking about this is not just a lack of respect towards Fifa, or the referee alone, or the Brazilian team, or to the people who work here in a very serious manner with 100 years of football history, a winning history.


"We think this is a lack of respect for the Brazilian people. Brazil does not need the help of the referee to win a match."
