Mano Manezes insists that he is happy with the steady improvement being made by his Brazil side as they prepare to defend a 14-month unbeaten run against Japan in Poland on Tuesday.

Brazil coach Mano Menezes has declared that he is happy with his side's steady progress as they build towards hosting the World Cup in 2014.

Menezes has led an experimental Brazil side to dominant victories in recent months, including a 6-0 win over Iraq in Sweden last Friday.

A buoyant Brazil camp was dealt an injury blow in training over the weekend with the news that Real Madrid defender Marcelo will be out of action for three months with a broken metatarsal.

Menezes told reporters that overall he cannot complain with the Selecao's form during a 14-month unbeaten run.

He said: "Yes. We are unbeatable for the last 14 months, but on the other hand the expectation on Brazilian football is always huge.

"We are getting closer to what we want. That's the last part of the process and our game itself is already better."

Japan await Brazil in a friendly to take place in Poland on Tuesday, fresh from a shock 1-0 win over France last week.
