"It is up to the president to decide. We will hand in a final report and then leave it to him to analyse what needs to be done," said Scolari after Brazil lost 3-0 to the Netherlands in the third-place play-off in Brasilia on Saturday.

"I'm not going to discuss (my future) with you. Winning or losing that is what we would have done." (Brazil Finish 4th)

Scolari's contract expires with the end of Brazil's campaign but there have been suggestions that he could stay on until the end of the year.
