Brazil three games away from ‘heaven’, says Scolari

Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has said that his side are just three games away from ‘heaven’ after they defeated Chile on penalties in the World Cup second round, BBC Sport has reported.

In a dramatic match played in a sensational atmosphere at the Estadio Minerao in Belo Horizonte, Brazil took the lead after a quarter of an hour, when David Luiz got the final touch at the far post from a corner. However, Alexis Sanchez levelled for Jorge Sampaoli’s side after capitalising on some sloppy defending from the hosts.


After Hulk had a goal disallowed and Mauricio Pinilla hit the crossbar in the dying seconds of extra time, the game went to penalties, and Chile missed both of their opening two kicks. Despite that, they were level in the shootout when Hulk saw his effort saved. Neymar scored Brazil’s fifth kick, before Gonzalo Jara hit the woodwork to give the five-time World champions the victory.


After the game, Scolari said: ‘We took upon ourselves this mission that we must be champions. If you make a promise, you must deliver. This is what the players are doing. There are three more games to see if we can reach heaven."


"The World Cup has shown that teams are very balanced. If you cannot exploit one or two or three chances, as we didn't today, then you might pay the price for that and go out."
