Portugal's Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari cuddles the World Cup 2006 mascot 'Goleo' after his tour through the newly opened sports hotel of 'Hotel Klosterpforte' (monastery's gate) where he will be staying with the national soccer team of Portugal during the World Cup 2006 tournament, in Marienfeld near the western German city of Bielefeld April 29, 2006. Scolari said on Friday he had withdrawn from the running to become England manager. In a news conference televised from Portugal's World Cup training site in Germany, Scolari said his plans would be open after July 31 when his contract with the Portuguese Football Federation ran out.
