Scolari simply does not get enough credit for his coaching. Look at the improvement he has already wrought in this Brazilian team within 4 days -- from losing 7-1 to losing by merely 3 goals.

He should get the James T. Kirk Award for taking Brazil where no Brazilian has gone before. We must also recognize his gift to Brazilian soccer this summer: João Alves de Assis Silva, also known as Jô. Brazilian forwards past and present, mediocre and good, have had bad games and tournaments but none was like Jô. I recall Adriano falling short of expectation and missing the net, or literally fighting with himself to receive simple passes. But Jô is unique in his lack of technical skill, sense of positioning, and the ability to finish. Never thought Brazil could actually produce a player of Emil Heskey or Peter Crouch's calibre.

Scolari, had a very reputable record in the past with Brazil(including a world cup win in 2002). In general, He is a great coach. May be he is just too old for this.

Scolari "was" a great coach. Under him Brazil won the 2002 world cup with the most dominating performance (7-0 win record which is the best in world cup history). Then he took the challenge with Portugal and took them to the top-4 in 2006. But he is getting older and had a false sense of invincibility after the confederation cup win. We now know all those "champions" form that tournament - Spain, Mexico etc. didn't fair so well against the likes of Germany and Netherlands.

I will say though, despite all the breakdown and catastrophic loss in the end, Brazil had a better world cup than the last two. The top 4 team in the semis were the best teams of the tournament. Ya'll saw how the Netherlands destroyed Spain 5-1 and Germany destroyed Portugal 4-0 even before the knock-out stages. They were clearly favorites to win the cup and it was only because of a great players like Messi that Argentina vs. Germany final was possible and was a very competitive match.

Brazil still maintained a high success in World Cup tournaments but Scolari will be replaced and they will have to re-think their approach against the best teams.
