Scolari: We'll Only Get Better

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari believes that they are getting closer to settling on their best starting XI following their 3-0 win over Japan in the Confederations Cup.

Neymar opened the scoring with a sublime volley before Paulinho added a second and substitute Jo wrapped up the win late on.

The win follows a 3-0 drubbing of France just before the tournament and Scolari feels that they will only improve as time goes on.

"My feeling is that we're finding the best lineup," Scolari told reporters.

"Little by little, with backup options that help us a lot when they come into the pitch.

"We'll only get better with time."

Neymar's wonder goal certainly stole the show on the night, but Scolari was quick to praise the entire team.

"I've said it already, Neymar is a fine player, who may not be on his best sometimes, but is a great talent, he can make a difference," he added.

"The team spirit, the dynamics of this group of players, must also be highlighted."
