SACKED: Brazil fire World Cup manager after Copa America humiliation

Brazil have fired manager Dunga after less than two seasons at the helm.

The former 1994 World Cup winning player was sacked two days after Brazil were beaten 1-0 by Peru following a controversial hand ball was not called on the lone goal of the match.

The embarrassing loss to Peru resulted in Brazil’s elimination from the Copa America Centenario – their first time failing to escape the group stage of the Copa America since 1987.

Dunga was hired to manage Brazil after one of their most humiliating defeats – a 7-1 loss to Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in which Brazil were the host nation.

In his first summer as manager, Brazil were beaten in the quarter-finals of the 2015 Copa America after losing to Paraguay 4-3 on penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw.
