Luiz Felipe Scolari was not living in glory after
Mexico-Brazil 0-0 draw in Fortaleza on Tuesday
‘s match. However, a media criticism clearly stirred Scolari up. “One more, one more,” Scolari was quoted as saying to the Fifa official, after the latter was trying to wrap up the post-match press conference. Scolari further says, “Because I want to ask a question myself. Yes, I want to ask a question.”
A question in Spanish from a Mexican journalist asked to get his opinion on goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. The journalist further queried Brazil’s opinion on the North American nation.
Mexico’s latest score against Brazil now stands at P14 W7 D3 L4. This data doesn’t count the explicit triumph of Mexico over Brazil in the London Olympics 2012, below a 23 fixture. There was a moment of light relief as Scolari stressed that he did not like Ochoa. “OK, so there are no more penalties for Brazil, right?” Scolari said, facing everybody in the auditorium. “That’s my question for you. All you did was criticise Fred … ”
Scolari was frustrated about the Brazilian media’s sharp attack against striker Fred. Scolari thanked Yuichi Nishimura, for helping through achieving an award despite a penalty that led to a triumph over Croatia in the Group A opening tie. Scolari was grateful for that as it prevents penalties for Brazil in the World Cup.
Before walking towards the door to leave, Scolari made a remarkable statement, “So I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. Well done.”
