Scolari Praises Italy
“The Azzurri are at a more advanced stage of the renewal process compared to us,” said Scolari.
“My Brazil has been working together for only two games, whereas Cesare Prandelli’s side is Vice-Champion of Europe.”
Scolari, who has had a lengthy coaching career with over 20 clubs and countries, took over Brazil for a second time last November. Brazil are currently eighteenth in the FIFA World Rankings while Italy sit fifth.
Italy will follow-up Thursday match with a World Cup Qualifier versus Malta next Tuesday.
