Brazil v Colombia preview

posted in: News | 7

Luiz Felipe Scolari insists Brazil “have one hand” on the World Cup heading into their quarter-final clash with Colombia.
Brazil go into the tie at the Estadio Castelao (9pm) on the back of a wave of negativity.
Brazil were criticised for some unconvincing play in the group stages and they only scraped through to the last eight after a nail-biting penalty shootout win against Chile.
But Scolari insisted his team were destined to win the World Cup before the tournament started and he is sticking by his words.
“Do we have one hand on the Cup? Yes,” the Brazilian said in a fiery press conference on the eve of the match.
“Don’t forget those statements (I made about winning the World Cup before it started). They were all fantastic. Those statements could not be any different now.
“We are going on to the fifth step now. There are seven in total.”
Neymar has assured Brazil fans he ‘feels fine’ and will be able to play in the game, but Luiz Gustavo is suspended after being booked in the last-16 tie against Chile, which the hosts won after a penalty shoot-out.
Paulinho could replace Gustavo in midfield, although Scolari has also experimented with a 3-5-2 system in training.
Colombia coach Jose Pekerman, meanwhile, has reported no injury concerns ahead of the game although he may decide to drop Jackson Martinez in favour of an extra midfielder.
