After a group stage exit from the Copa America Centenario, Brazil have sacked coach Dunga.

It was the second spell in charge for a man who won the World Cup with them as a player in 1994.

They managed a 7-1 victory over Haiti at the tournament in the United States, but a failure to beat either Peru or Ecuador saw them finish third in their group.

They are also struggling in 2018 World Cup qualification, sitting sixth and just outside the final playoff place after six games.
