FA ready to offer England job to Scolari - report

LONDON -- Luiz Felipe Scolari will be offered the job of manager of the English national soccer team, The Sun newspaper claimed on Thursday.

The paper reported that FA officials have travelled to Lisbon to meet Scolari and officials from the Portuguese FA, hoping to secure a deal for the current Portugal and former Brazil coach to succeed Sven-Goran Eriksson after the World Cup.

Scolari, who led Brazil to its 2002 World Cup triumph and took Portugal to the final of Euro 2004 -- knocking out England on both occasions -- emerged as an unexpected favourite earlier this week and his contract with Portugal ends after the World Cup in July.

The Sun quoted an "FA insider" as saying FA officials met Scolari on Wednesday with the full permission of the Portuguese FA, although those officials have previously said that they would only discuss the issue after the World Cup.

Eriksson said in January he would quit as England coach after the finals.
