Rio de Janeiro: Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari insisted his side were still a work in progress despite their Confederations Cup masterclass against world champions Spain here Sunday.

Scolari, the architect of Brazil's last World Cup victory in 2002, was the proudest man in the Maracana on Sunday as his remodeled team overwhelmed the fabled Spaniards 3-0 courtesy of two goals from Fred and a sublime effort from Neymar.

With the World Cup on Brazilian soil less than 12 months away, it was a result which will infuse Scolari's team with belief that a record sixth World Cup crown is there for the taking if all goes to plan next year.
