After a meeting with the Brazilian football confederation, it has been decided that Dunga will remain in charge of the Brazilian sides for both the Copa America and the Olympics.
A poor run of form has suggested that Dunga might be replaced at the head of the Olympics team so that he can devote himself entirely to the senior team.
Brazil’s technical director GilmarRinaldo has stated that the meeting was just a routine one and that there has been nothing new that has been discussed. He added that Dunga will go to the end of his contract with the Brazil national team.
Brazilian winger Lucas has recently said that Brazil is not playing collectively enough at the moment. He believes that there is a lack of tactical preparation in the team and that Brazil is not making the most of their current crop of players. He believes that other national teams are ahead of them tactically, and they need changes now.
Lucas said that football has evolved a lot and that Brazil seems to be lost in this evolution. He said there is still time to take corrective measures, and it is up to the coach to make the necessary changes. Lucas has not played for the Selecao since 2013 despite being in great form with the Paris Saint-Germain.
Indeed, the Brazil national side is currently 6th in the qualifiers table for the South American zone with only two wins from their six matches so far. The top 4 at the end of the qualifying campaign will get an automatic ticket to the World Cup while the fifth team will be qualified for a play-off.
Brazil has never missed a World Cup finals since the competition began and had won the trophy 5 times.
