Lula: Brazil blew great chance for 6th WCup title

Brazil President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, speaking two weeks after Brazil was knocked out of the World Cup, says the five-time champions blew a great chance at a sixth.
In a radio interview on Thursday, Silva said this should have been an easy World Cup for Brazil to win, calling it the weakest field he'd even seen.
A hard-core football fan, he suggested fate conspired against Brazil. He said that made it more likely that Brazil would win the World Cup in 2014 when it is the host team.
Asked about the next coach of the national team, Silva said former coach Luiz Felipe Scolari might have the edge. Scolari won the 2002 World Cup for Brazil. He also mentioned former Real Madrid coach Vanderley Luxemburgo _ the current coach of Brazil club Atletico Mineiro _ and Mano Menezes, current coach of Corinthians.
