"The result was better than expected. We had difficulties but overcame them really well. South Korea have quality. They were very impressive in the last 20 minutes," Scolari told reporters.
"They were also very good early in the game. I think they were defensive. Maybe Brazil just wanted to play football and South Korea tried a little too hard to impress. They conceded twice many fouls as us."
Brazil are not playing World Cup qualifiers because they automatically have a place in the tournament as hosts.
