Scolari wants Brazil to take on Argentina in the World Cup final

Fifa World Cup Brazil

Speaking in a press conference, Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari revealed his dream final in which his side would take on fierce rivals Argentina.

With both teams on the same side of the draw and expected to win their respective groups, the earliest possible fixture the two sides could meet would be the final in Rio De Janeiro on July 13th. 

The two South American giants have never before faced each other in a World Cup final, but Scolari is keen for that precise outcome to be realised and would consider it the perfect scenario. 

"Scolari told a press conference: I don't have any worries about Argentina, I hope we meet them in the final."

He went on to say: "I hope we do have a Brazil Argentina final, that would be the best final." 

The Brazil boss is clearly confident in the ability his side possesses and showed little concern in facing who are arguably the host nation's sternest competition.

So is this mind games from Scolari? or is the 65-year-old genuine in his ambition to be involved in what could be the greatest ever World Cup final at the possible expense of his side's chance of victory?

Scolari holds over thirty years experience in the management game and has a reputation in the press for looking to ease the pressure of his players. It's quite possible that this statement is an attempt to do just that, installing confidence in his squad in the process. 

Brazil will kick off the World cup against Croatia on the 12th of June, and time will tell if Scolari is to get his wish. One thing is for certain, it certainly would be a grand spectacle.
