(Football) Dunga named as Brazil coach
(07-23 11:27)

Dunga has been appointed as the coach of the Brazilian national football team, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CFB) said on Tuesday.
The 50-year-old Dunga replaces Luiz Felipe Scolari, who resigned last week after Brazil failed to win the World Cup. Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the semi-finals and lost 3-0 to the Netherlands in the third-place play-off.
Dunga was the captain of Brazil's 1994 World Cup-winning team, and coached the national team at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He was sacked after Brazil lost 2-1 in the quarterfinals to the Netherlands. --Xinhua
