Five-time world champions take on current World Cup winners with history at stake.
Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has insited that his team have the quality to overcome world champions Spain in the final of the Fifa Confederations Cup on Sunday night, reports the Mail on Sunday.
The two super powers of world football go head to head in the iconic Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro as the host nation look to win the competition for a record-breaking third time in a row, and for the fourth occasion overall.
Meanwhile their opponents are also looking to create history in Brazil, with Vincente del Bosque’s men aiming to get their hands on the one remaining trophy that has eluded them so far in their recent domination of the world game, having recently won back-to-back European Championships to go alongside their 2010 World Cup triumph in South Africa.
However Scolari, who coached the Selecao to their history-making fifth and last world title in Japan and South Korea in 2002, feels that his side have nothing to fear against La Roja, telling Globoesporte.com: “We are playing Spain by respecting their quality, but also trying to show our potential and talent.
“We have reached the final and we have enough quality to get past them.”
