Luiz Felipe Scolari is back in charge of Brazil's national soccer team, and he said Thursday he knows that anything but a sixth World Cup title at the 2014 tournament will be considered a failure.
SAFA president Kristen Nematandani finally announced Bafana Bafana's assistant coach as the successor to Brazilian Carlos Alberto Parreira at a news conference, exactly two weeks after SAFA said Mr. Mosimane was the man it wanted but that he had to be approved by SAFA's technical committee.
Strutting into the stadium dancing and singing, Bafana Bafana turned its final game at the World Cup into a rollicking party for all of South Africa. All that was missing was enough goals to see them through to the next round.
"It's the match everybody has been waiting for," said Brazil assistant coach Carlos Alberto Parreira, who led the national team to the 1994 world title. "We all know how good Spain is, but Brazil is going through a sensational moment and is full of confidence."
"We are here to help and to give our support," Parreira said. "There is only one goal, which is to win the World Cup. Nobody can even think about Brazil not winning the World Cup at home."
