Scolari insists Brazil on track after Uruguay test

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe conceded his team cannot yet start dreaming of a sixth World Cup title next year - but it is now just one match away from a third straight Confederations Cup success after edging out Uruguay.

Pretty it was not, and Scolari admitted as much after an oddly uninspired Selacao dug out a 2-1 success over the Celeste, who have haunted them ever since a World Cup final success over the Samba stars in Rio 63 years ago.

"I think we are on the right road," said "Big Phil" after a Paulinho header saw Brazil drag itself over the line when it seemed Uruguay, having leveled Fred's bundled opener shortly before the break with a fine Edinson Cavani finish, looked as if it might repeat its 1950 exploits.
