Scolari says Brazil squad becoming `more afraid` ahead of Chile WC clash

London: Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has admitted that his squad is becoming `more afraid` as they prepare to face Chile in their first match of the World Cup knockout stage.

Brazil will face Chile on Friday to battle for a place in the last 8 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

According to the BBC, Scolari said that it is normal for Brazil to be anxious, especially now in the knockout stage where they cannot lose.

The coach said that Brazil has become more afraid, more nervous, adding that it is normal, not because it is in Brazil, but because it is a World Cup.

The hosts won two and drew one of their group games to qualify comfortably for the last 16, with star man Neymar scoring four goals in the three games.
