Brazil sack Dunga after Copa America exit

Brazil have sacked coach Dunga after the five-time world champions' shock elimination from the Copa America.

Brazil exited the Copa America at the group stage for the first time since 1987, following Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Peru.

A statement from the Brazilian Football Confederation on Tuesday night confirmed that Dunga, who captained Brazil to World Cup success in 1994, and the technical committee had all been relieved of their duties.

"The CBF has on Tuesday taken the decision to dissolve the Brazilian national team's technical committee.

"Team coordinator Gilmar Rinaldi and head coach Dunga, and his entire coaching team, will leave their positions.

"The decision was made during a meeting this afternoon and the CBF has now started the process of forming a new technical committee.

"The CBF thanks the outgoing staff for their dedication, hard work and commitment."

Dunga began his second spell in charge in 2014, having won the 2007 Copa America in his previous spell in charge between 2006 and 2010.

He was sacked after the 2010 World Cup following the team's quarter-final exit to the Netherland in South Africa.
