Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has praised Brazil's coaching setup ahead of the World Cup semi-final between the two nations.
The Bayern Munich man has previously criticised the South Americans over their physicality, but insists that he has nothing but respect for Luiz Felipe Scolari and his assistant Carlos Alberto Parreira.
"They are two coaches with a lot of experience who have both won the World Cup," he told reporters. "They are clever coaches and you need intelligent coaches to win the title."
