Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has resigned following the host nation’s FIFA World Cup failure.

Scolari, whose contract was coming to an end, stepped down after Brazil were thrashed 7-1 by Germany in the semi-finals and suffered a 3-0 loss to Netherlands in the third-place play-off in front of their home fans.

Brazil were considered pre-tournament favourites to claim a sixth world crown but came up short, denying Scolari the opportunity to add to the title he won in 2002.

And it was announced on Monday that the 65-year-old had called time on his tenure.

“Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari and his fellow coaching staff surrendered their positions to the board of the Brazilian Football Confederation,” a statement said.

“The resignation was accepted by president [Jose Maria] Marin, who was keen to thank all the coaches and players and, by extension, the Brazilian fans for their support throughout the World Cup campaign.

“Scolari and his entire coaching staff deserve our respect and gratitude. They were responsible for returning to the Brazilian people your love for the team, despite not having achieved our greatest goal.”

The former Portugal coach took charge of Brazil for the second time in November 2012 and led them to Confederations Cup glory last year.

He finished with a record of 19 wins, six draws and four losses from his 28 matches in his second stint in charge.
