Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has reiterated his belief that Brazil will win the World Cup, while reacting angrily to criticism of himself and his side, BBC Sport has reported.

Scolari was speaking at a press conference ahead of Brazil’s quarter-final match with Colombia in Fortaleza on Friday evening, and the 65-year-old claimed that the host nation still had one hand on the trophy despite their unconvincing showing in the tournament thus far.


"Does Brazil continue to have one hand on the trophy? Yes," said Scolari. "We are going on to the fifth step and there are seven steps."


He also went on to repeat statements which he gave before the World Cup where he talked up the country’s hopes of winning the competition for a sixth time. "Don't forget those statements. They were all fantastic - those statements could not be any different.


"Our population, our supporters, don't expect any different. They want us to tell them what we want, how we want to win and how we are going to get it. We continue with the same speech," added the man who won Brazil their last World Cup back in 2002, when they triumphed in South Korea and Japan.
