“Today’s game showed that the team’s coming together slowly but surely. Getting an early goal helped us, but my feeling is that we’re sorting out some very important details. I’m sure we’re only going to improve. Neymar? Well, like I’ve said before, he’s a fantastic player. He might be off form now and then, but there’s no question he’s a star,” Luiz Felipe Scolari, Brazil coach.
