After the Brazilian national team confirmed that Luis Felipe Scolari resigned after the 2014 World Cup, the Selecao are at a crossroads.
Scolari led Brazil to fourth place at the World Cup but their 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semifinal and 3-0 loss to the Netherlands in the third place match proved the hosts need to head in a new direction. Despite winning the World Cup for Brazil in 2002, Scolari could not lead the current crop of Brazilians to glory on home soil.
With the 65-year-old manager officially out, there are a long list of successors lined up
Big names such as Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klinsmann, Fabio Capello, Sir Alex Ferguson and Vincente del Bosque are rank outsiders to get the job, but according to British bookmaker Paddy Power here are the top candidates to replace Scolari.
