Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said he hopes to recreate his famous "family" of players who won the 2002 World Cup but warned that off-field as well as on-field pressures could adversely affect his young squad.

Scolari told reporters at a Confederations Cup press conference that playing the 2014 World Cup at home would come with its own "massive pressure".

He said: "This is different (than in 2002) because they are young, you have all that paraphanelia, it is harder to control. There are 500 agents, 500 people involved in commercials and marketing.
