Sao Paulo, Brazil:

Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari wants to stay in Europe in the near future, but admits he'd like to return to Brazil to command the five-time world champion again. "I want to remain in Europe for at least another three years, but I don't discard working for a Brazilian team or even the national team," Scolari told Sunday's editions of O Globo newspaper. "From time to time I feel like (coaching Brazil again)." The Brazilian coach led his nation to the 2002 World Cup title in South Korea and Japan. "I don't believe in that story about leaving while on top," he said. "Achievements can be improved." Scolari praised Brazil coach Dunga, who has a 5-1-1 record since taking over the national team after the World Cup in Germany. "He's doing well," Scolari said. "He has a lot of charisma and great knowledge of soccer." Scolari has twice beaten Brazil in friendlies, including 2-0 last month in London. The coach also said AC Milan player Ronaldo remains Brazil's top striker, and would have a chance to play on his team. "I see him playing in the national team," Scolari said. "He still is the nation's best striker."
