Luiz Felipe Scolari is adamant that he will not resign as Brazil boss, despite his side's second damaging defeat in the space of five days.
The Selecao were brutally beaten 7-1 by Germany in their World Cup semi-final in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday and were unable to restore any pride as they went down 3-0 to Netherlands in the third-place play-off.
Before this competition, Brazil had not lost a home game since 2002 and were unbeaten in tournament football in their nation since 1975 but back-to-back defeats - and 10 goals conceded - in the space of five days have left fans frustrated and the 65-year-old pressed on his future.

"It was an evenly balanced game," he stated. "The players should be praised for the way they played. We didn't play badly - that's my opinion.
Scolari added: "Now is not the time to talk about [my future]. I'll put together my report and tell the [CBF] president what I think went wrong and he will decide what he wants for the future. We have lost another match but life goes on.
"A year ago, I won the Confederations Cup. It's nothing to do with the coaches.
"The thing is that we have a very young team. We are not producing enough players so it's not as simple as another coach coming in to recycle things."
