Brazil's Luiz Felipe Scolari, Thiago Silva Pose with Argentina Flag for Good Luck

We never expect to see Brazil's manager and captain holding an Argentina flag, much less with a potential World Cup final showdown looming. But Luiz Felipe Scolari and Thiago Silva did just that, apparently in the name of good luck.

An El Diario journalist took the photo, asking Scolari for a picture after a press conference. Apparently, Scolari had already been photographed with the flag ahead of Brazil's win on penalties against Chile. Since it had proven lucky the first time, Scolari waved over Thiago Silva and struck a pose once more.

And can you blame him? With Silva suspended and Neymar injured, Brazil will need all the luck they can get against Germany.
