Football, Sports

Former Brazil national team footballer Dunga has been sacked as the Brzil national coach after the team’s shocking first round exit from Copa America 2016. Brazilian supporters were hoping for a good tournament at the 100th edition of Copa America but Brazil started with goalless draw with Ecuador. They followed up with an emphatic 7 – 1 win over Haiti but lost 0 – 1 to Peru to exit the competition. This is for the first time since 1987 that Brazil has exited Copa America in the first round.

After the loss, Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) held a meeting on Tuesday and the entire technical commission of the national team was sacked including coach Dunga and team coordinator Gilmar Rinaldi. This was Dunga’s second term as Brazil National team coach. Corinthians coach Tite is front runner among new coach hopefuls following his dream run of making the Corinthians Brazil Serie A title in 2015 and 2012, Copa Libertadores and World Club Cup titles.
