Brazil Give Emphatic Response to Critics in Rout of Haiti at Copa America

Published: June 9, 2016

commentNo Comments

Cue the jokes, then. Yes, it may only have been Haiti, but Brazil put on a masterclass with their 7-1 mauling of their more-than-obliging opponents on Wednesday evening in the Copa America Centenario. The scoreline is one that has haunted Brazil for nigh on two years. While a group-stage win over probably the weakest side in this tournament will not exorcise any lingering ghosts, coach Dunga has at... 

Dunga and Brazil Must Take off Shackles at Copa America in Bid for Identity

Published: June 6, 2016

While Wednesday’s Copa America group-stage clash with Haiti does not represent a “must-win” fixture in terms of elimination for Brazil, following the Selecao‘s slumbering goalless opener against Ecuador, the pressure only continues to mount on boss Dunga. This is quickly becoming far more critical than simply a series of disappointments. Reaction to Saturday night’s game... 

Brazil Struggle for Answers Against Ecuador in Copa America Opener

For those watching at home, this was somewhat inevitable. As Brazil sleepwalked their way towards a goalless draw with Ecuador in their Copa America opener on Saturday evening, all that was wrong with Dunga and his side was laid bare. Yes, this Ecuador team is in form and sits joint top of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying group. They are well disciplined and tactically organised, but surely Brazil,... 

4 Key Battles to Decide Brazil vs. Ecuador Copa America Clash

Brazil get their Copa America campaign underway on Saturday, 4 June, against World Cup qualifying leaders Ecuador. The game will be held at the Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena, California, which holds happy memories for the Selecao; it was where they lifted their fourth World Cup, in 1994, with a penalty-shootout victory against Italy. Saturday’s match is likely to be a little more low-key, but there... 

Dunga Must Find Perfect Balance to Restore Faith in Brazil Ahead of Copa America

Published: June 1, 2016

With Roy Hodgson’s decision to load up his England squad with just about every available striker at his disposal, the national team boss may be going some way to shaking off the rather harsh label he has been given as a defensive coach. Dunga, his counterpart at the helm of Brazil’s national ship, has faced similar criticisms during his second spell in charge of the Selecao. However, heading... 

Dunga and New-Look Brazil Side Ready for Centenary Copa America

Published: May 31, 2016

Kicking off what looks like an impossibly packed international summer of football is the 2016 Copa America. The centenary edition comes right on the heels of last year’s tournament and a first title for an exciting Chile side that subsequently turned their manager, Jorge Sampaoli, into a man in demand. One man apparently not in demand, at least not in the Brazilian press, is national boss Dunga.... 

Brazilian League Prime Example of Selecao Failings on International Stage

On Thursday night, I went to the Maracana, one of the most iconic stages in football the world over. The setting was a Campeonato Brasileiro match, the Brazilian league championship, and a meeting between Fluminense and Santos, two of the most traditional sides from the country’s prosperous south-east. But in the vast concrete bowl capable of holding a shade over 78,000, a paltry crowd of... 

Is It Time for Brazil to Get Behind Dunga as Selecao Boss?

Published: July 3, 2015

commentNo Comments

With much grinding and gnashing of teeth, as is customary when Brazil bow out of any tournament, it has been announced this week that Dunga will be staying on as Brazil coach for the World Cup qualifiers, scheduled to kick off in October. Suffice to say, the news has not been met in this corner of the world with the warmest enthusiasm. The 1994 World Cup-winning captain is not everyone’s cup... 

6 Potential Answers to Dunga’s Brazil Crisis

The coverage of Brazil’s shortcomings, not only at this Copa America but in the strength in depth of their current options, has been extensive since defeat against Paraguay last weekend. Argentina’s subsequent 6-1 demolition of their neighbours on Tuesday evening served only to highlight even further the amount of work that lies ahead of Dunga if he is to lead Brazil’s charge back...

So, Brazil’s Copa America adventure met a premature end. While it was a hugely disappointing exit at the quarter-final stage for Dunga and his charges, there were nevertheless a few bright spots on an otherwise cloudy horizon for the coach to mull over prior to the World Cup qualifiers getting underway later this year. Here, Bleacher Report takes a look at the Selecao squad members who can come...
