The hosts play their last match of the tournament this evening when they meet the Dutch in Brasilia.
Following their humiliating semi-final defeat to Germany, Scolari is eager for his team to restore some pride both for themselves and the fans.
"Now we have to focus on the goal of coming third," the veteran coach is quoted as saying by FIFA.com. "We know that even a win won't take away the disappointment, but we have to have objectives."
Scolari recently revealed that he will make a decision on his future once the World Cup is over.
