SAO PAULO - Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is worried the street protests that are planned during the World Cup could hurt his teams chances of winning the title. Nike Air Force 1 Low Soldes . Scolari says that although Brazilians have the right to complain about the government and demand improvements, perhaps the protests wont be coming at the "right time." He said the protests "could, big-time" affect his players performance during the World Cup, although he will not prohibit them from talking about the subject during the tournament. In an interview with Globo TV late Sunday, Scolari also said Brazil should have done a better job in its preparations for the World Cup, and said he has already made up his mind on 21 of the 23 players of his squad. Violent anti-government protests erupted across Brazil last year as people took to the streets calling for better services and questioning the billions being spent on hosting the World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympics. The protests have since diminished in size, but they are widely expected again in the run-up to this years football tournament. "I think the protests can happen," Scolari said. "If they are peaceful, then thats democracy. Everyone has the right to protest. But I dont know if its the right time." The coach had already tried to distance the national team from the protests during last years Confederations Cup, when the largest public demonstrations in a generation broke out at the start of the warm-up tournament. Protests happened in all six host cities at the time, although matches and teams were not directly affected as Brazil went on to win the title. The players openly talked about the protests last year and the coach said they will be allowed to do it again during the World Cup. "They are national team players and they are on a mission," he said. "They can express themselves and say look, I also want a better Brazil, but I dont want it to be something that causes problems to our environment." Scolari also criticized Brazils preparations for the World Cup, saying that the country wasted time and should have done more to get things ready more quickly. "We could have done a better job to take advantage of these seven years that we had to prepare everything that was going to be needed, from airports to roads to education," he said. "But we lost time and we now we are out of time." Scolari last week confirmed nine players who will make Brazils squad David Luiz, Oscar, Ramires, Willian, Paulinho, Julio Cesar, Thiago Silva, Fred and Neymar and on Sunday he said there are only two spots remaining in the team. "We are still making observations, there are a lot of things we are still looking at," he said. Scolari will announce the official 23-man squad on May 7. Seven possible alternates will be announced later. Brazil will play friendlies against Panama and Serbia just before the World Cup opener against Croatia on June 12. Air Force One Pas Cher . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said.

Barcelona prides itself in upholding high moral values and being "more than a club." The Catalan giants, though, have decided to overlook a litany of misdemeanours by Luis Suarez to sign footballs most high-profile outcast. The Uruguay striker is set to seal his transfer from Liverpool next week despite being unable to play, or even train with his new teammates, until the end of October when his latest biting ban expires. FIFA on Thursday rejected Suarezs appeal against the four-month suspension from all football activity for sinking his teeth into an Italian opponent during a World Cup match last month. But Barcelona was undeterred in striking a transfer deal on Friday of around $130 million with Liverpool to bolster its strike force as it tries to regain the Spanish title. Suarez will travel to Barcelona next week for a medical examination and to sign a five-year contract. The ban will prevent Barca holding an official presentation in the Camp Nou. Fridays announcement by the club made no mention of Suarezs punishment for biting Giorgio Chiellini, while hailing the scorer as a "strong competitive spirit and a powerful figure." For 27-year-old Suarez, the move to Spain provides an escape route and a chance to rehabilitate his image in a new environment. Despite scoring 82 goals in 133 Liverpool appearances, Suarezs prowess in front of goal during three years in England was overshadowed by bans for racial abuse and biting. "It is with a heavy heart that I leave Liverpool for a new life and new challenges in Spain," Suarez said Friday. "Me and my family have fallen in love with this club and with the city. We will always be Liverpool supporters. This club did all they could to get me to stay, but playing and living in Spain, where my wifes family live, is a lifelong dream and ambition. I believe now the timing is rright. Air Force 1 Basse Noir. " The World Cup incident followed a club season that had begun with Suarez also being banned for biting, after he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a Premier League match in April 2013. Barcelona will be hoping Suarez brings his scoring form to Spain -- he netted 31 in the Premier League last season as Liverpool finished second -- rather than the hot-headed temperament. When Suarez is eventually eligible to play again, Barcelona will be able to deploy a formidable front line including Lionel Messi and Neymar, as the club rebuilds under new coach Luis Enrique after its first season without a major trophy in six years. Suarezs transfer marks the second successive year that the man voted English footballs top player moved to Spain, following in Gareth Bales speedy footsteps. Suarezs transfer was a far smoother, less drawn-out saga compared with Bales move, and his own tactics last summer when Liverpool managed to prevent its star from leaving Anfield. "It is with great reluctance and following lengthy discussions we have eventually agreed to his wishes to move to Spain for new experiences and challenges," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. Having extracted from Barca almost double the 40 million pounds ($68 million) Arsenal valued Suarez at last year, Liverpool has funds to reinvest in the squad. American owner John Henry has already spent around $70 million on striker Rickie Lambert, and midfielders Adam Lallana and Emre Can. Just how reliant Liverpool was on Suarez will become quickly apparent. It was only with Suarezs goals that Liverpool mounted an unexpected but ultimately unsuccessful challenge for the Premier League title last season. "If there is one thing the history of this great club teaches us, it is that Liverpool FC is bigger than any individual," Rodgers said. ' ' '
