The president elect of the Brazilian Football Confederation suggests that Luiz Felipe Scolari will keep his job in charge of the national team.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari will reportedly keep his job in charge of the national team despite their catastrophic exit from the World Cup.

Brazil started their home tournament as favourites and reached the semi-finals before being torn apart by Germany, who ran out 7-1 winners on a historic night in Belo Horizonte.

Former players such as Juninho and Zico have called for Scolari's resignation, but it appears that the 2002 World Cup-winning manager will be allowed to continue.

"For me, he stays," president elect of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) Marco Polo del Nero, told Estado de Sao Paulo.

"What happened was a tactical error. That was the problem. But we all make mistakes. It can happen to anyone.

"The important thing is that he did a good job. The campaign and the preparations were good. A base exists."

Brazil will look to end the tournament on a high when they contest for third place against Netherlands later this evening.
