Although the coach didn’t complain about his team, he was upset with the refereeing.

Scolari thought Brazil deserved a penalty after defender Marcelo apparently was grabbed inside the area in the 88th minute. And he recalled the controversy after Brazil was awarded a penalty when Fred went down following minimal contact from a defender in the opening match

“So, there won’t be any more penalties for Brazil?” he asked journalists. “Everybody (who) criticized Fred. Speak now.”
