Brazil is set to name its new national team coach, with reports suggesting Carlos Dunga is likely to return to the post.
Brazil will announce a coach on Tuesday to succeed Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned after Brazil failed to win the World Cup — eliminated in a humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany in the semifinals. [eap_ad_2] Reports say Dunga will get the job, although the Brazilian football confederation has declined to confirm the appointment.
Dunga was the captain of Brazil’s 1994 World Cup-winning team, and coached the national team in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He was dismissed after Brazil lost 2-1 in the quarterfinals to the Netherlands.
In his 60 matches as national team coach, Brazil won 42, drew 12 and lost six.[eap_ad_3]
