SAO PAULO (AP) Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari got some laughs out of Neymar and journalists in a packed news conference at the Itaquerao Stadium on Wednesday.

Asked if he was expecting a good night of sleep before Brazil's World Cup opener Thursday, he didn't hesitate to say he was at peace. At least with the football side of things.

"I always sleep well," he said. "I don't know if I do other things well, but I do sleep well. I'll sleep well tonight, you can be sure of that."

Sitting next to Scolari, Neymar looked a bit surprised with the answer, but laughed when the coach started smiling.

Neymar also made Scolari laugh when he was told by a reporter to ask the coach a question.

After thinking for a bit, the Brazilian star said: "Will I play tomorrow?"
