Johannesburg - Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari admits his knowledge of Bafana Bafana’s game remains limited, but says his assistant coach Carlos Alberto Parreira has given him insight into their style of play.
Brazil take on Bafana in an international friendly in Johannesburg on Wednesday evening, in what will be their final friendly before the Brazilians’ 23-man World Cup squad is announced before the tournament.
“Everything I know about South Africa comes from the videos that we’ve watched, and everything else comes from what coach Alberto Parreira has told me in relation to the game tomorrow,” Scolari said ahead of the game at FNB Stadium.
Parreira was in charge of Bafana during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where the hosts failed to make it out of the group stages, but spent more than two years at the helm, allowing him valuable insight into the hosts' camp.
Parreira joined Scolari in 2012, and has helped mould the Samba Boys into one of the favourites to lift the 2014 Fifa World Cup title later this year.
With the World Cup -- hosted by Brazil -- fast approaching, Scolari said he was confident the South American nation would be more than ready for the start of the global spectacle.
“We still have 100 days to finish everything that we promised, so we should be able to do it,” he said.
Brazil have beaten Bafana in all four previous meetings, their last victory in Johannesburg coming in the 2009 Confederations Cup semi-final, where Dani Alves netted a superb 88th minute free kick.
