Luiz Felipe Scolari says it will be up to the Brazilian football confederation to decide whether he will continue as Brazil's coach after the World Cup.

Following Brazil's 3-0 loss to the Netherlands on Saturday, Scolari said he will let the confederation analyze his performance and decide whether he should remain as coach despite failing to succeed at the home tournament.

The coach, who led Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, said that "it's the president (of the confederation) who has to decide."

The confederation has hinted it wants the coach to stay with the national team, but nothing official has been announced so far.
