Scolari looking forward to Portugal reunion
Luiz Felipe Scolari has admitted that he is looking forward to friendlies against Australia and Portugal, one of his former employers.
The Brazil boss managed the Portuguese at the 2004 European Championships and admits it will be an occasion to savour.
"In these friendlies we have a chance to test a few players out. They may not necessarily be new players but it is an opportunity to change things around and have a look at some of them playing in different positions," Scolari told reporters.
"Australia are a good team and will be a good test. They already qualified for World Cup, so we want to face them.
"Facing Portugal on September 10 will be very strange for me and for [assistant coach] Flavio Murtoza. I have very special affection towards this country."
