Scolari resigns following Brazil's loss

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

RIO DE JANEIRO - Luiz Felipe Scolari has reportedly resigned as coach of the Brazil national team on Sunday.

The decision follows Brazil's 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands in the match for third-place at the World Cup Saturday and the 7-1 loss to Germany on Tuesday.

There was no immediate official confirmation of the report from Globo television, which said Scolari's offer of resignation was accepted by the Brazilian Football Confederation.

The coach, who was loudly booed by the crowd in Brasilia after Saturday's defeat, had said after the game it was up to the Brazilian football confederation to decide on his future.

Scolari, 65, led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, and after winning the Confederations Cup at home last year was hoping to lead the Selecao on home soil to a sixth title after being re-appointed coach in late 2012.
