Scolari, whose team is coming off a 2-2 draw with England in their last friendly international, has just one victory in the six matches since he took over and he knows the preparation for the World Cup next year needs to get better.

Meanwhile, team captain Thiago Silva, believes Brazil’s lack-off success at recent major tournament have been criticized, which is understandable, but people still need to respect what they have done.

“People in Europe don’t have big respect for the Brazilian people. I recently fought Olympique’s Joey Barton for that reason because he spoke badly about our football,” the Paris St Germain defender said.

“We’ve been eliminated from the World Cup and we didn’t have any other big competition to show our value.

“They see Spain, they see Germany, and they think they’re over us. But this shirt deserves respect, it’s the team with the most cups in history.”

Despite Brazil’s failure to finish off teams, France boss Didier Deschamps is expected to tough game against a team he believes is full of quality.

“I watched Brazil’s last game against England and they really have a lot of quality in attack with great technical expertise. They might have more ball than us,” Deschamps said.

“I may try to reinforce midfield, but not only to recover the ball. The idea is to force Brazil to defend a lot.”

Neymar, Hulk, Oscar, David Luiz and Dani Alves are all starters for Brazil, while Karim Benzema is amongst the starters for France.
