Spain are spectacular but have defects: Scolari
Rio de Janeiro: Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says he has identified weaknesses in the Spanish team ahead of Sunday`s Confederations Cup final at the Maracana Stadium here.
Brazil will be aiming for a record fourth Confederations Cup title while Spain is bidding for their first, and the only major trophy to elude Vicente del Bosque`s team, reports Xinhua.
"Spain are spectacular but they have some defects like all teams and we have to exploit them. We are very motivated. We respect the opposition but we have to back our own ability to win," Scolari said Saturday.
Del Bosque praised Brazil`s squad, which he said had no obvious weakness.
"They have great players, not just Neymar. They have two offensive fullbacks (Marcelo and Dani Alves). They have Hulk and Neymar, who are difficult to mark on the wings. Their central defenders and centrebacks are strong. Oscar is a different player with real quality and they have Fred, a forward who knows how to score and who their players look for," the Spain coach said.
