"The Germany project has been going on for eight years, the Argentines [runners-up] have been together for six. It takes time.
"I believe Scolari and his entire staff have done a good job - this squad has a good mix of experience and youth and has a future.
"After what happened in this World Cup, even those who are less experienced will now have the right mindset to win.
"I do not think that the wound of the 7-1 defeat to Germany will weaken them - in fact, after that night I saw straight away the will to get up - and the defeat in the last game for third place is a chapter we will close quickly."
Scolari previously led Brazil to victory at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.
