"We needed this victory. It gave us more confidence just at the right time."
-- Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari after his team's 3-0 win over France in its last game before the Confederations Cup. Since Scolari returned to the helm in December, Brazil had won just once, against Bolivia -- and tied Italy, Russia and Chile. The team also played England twice, losing 2-1 in London and drawing 2-2 at the revamped Maracana last week. (AP)
