Scolari on compassionate leave

Brazil Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is away on compassionate leave just days before their World Cup opener.

Scolari left the training camp today after news his 48-year-old nephew Tarcisio Schneider had been killed in a car crash.

The son of Scolari’s sister was driving his vehicle when it collided with a truck.

Brazil are set to play the opening World Cup game against Croatia on Thursday evening.
