SAO PAULO -- Luiz Felipe Scolari is resigning as Gremio's coach after a poor start in the Brazilian league.

Gremio president Romildo Bolzan said Scolari "did a...

Brazil says squad selection done solely by coach, not marketing partners

Orlando City midfielder Kaka discusses his inclusion in Brazil's Copa America squad, where he was recently named among the seven alternates.
