Scolari needs to implement changes in the Selecao line-up if the host
nation are to go all the way in this year’s World Cup.
The joint Mundial top goal-scorer has been
less-than-impressed by Brazil’s performances at the World Cup thus far,
and feels change is definitely needed in Scolari’s starting eleven.
“We are waiting for a good performance by Brazil,” said the former Brazilian international.
“We are not playing well. I am disappointed with the first four
matches. I think he (Scolari) will change something. I don’t know what.”
Ronaldo was also critical of strikers Fred and Jo, saying they have
been ineffective in Brazil’s campaign at the world showpiece.
“They aren’t playing well,” Ronaldo said. “There are no secrets – my
advice is to run a lot – but it’s not easy to play like a No 9, even if
you have Neymar playing with you.”
The ex-striker did pay complements to golden boy Neymar however, and
was pleased with the way in which the Brazilian megastar has dealt with
the pressures in his home country.
“I see Neymar and I don’t think that he really thinks about the pressure,” said the former Brazil number 9.
“He’s very calm, he’s relaxed. He’s just like a kid, just thinking
about playing well and score goals, even if the pressure is so big. He
is okay, he can handle it very well.”
Ronaldo then revealed his dream final opponents in this year’s event.
“I dream with a final match between Brazil and Argentina,” he said.
