Brazil's football confederation (CBF) will not renew national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari's contact, local media reported early Monday, just hours after Germany defeated Argentina to win the 2014 World Cup.

Scolari said that he would let the CBF decide his fate after his team lost the game for third place 3-0 to the Netherlands on Saturday, after being crushed by Germany in a humiliating 7-1 defeat on Tuesday.
