Dunga hoping to restore Brazilian pride [divider]
Brazil national team coach Dunga believes the national team must leave what happened in the past behind them and move on.
The Selecao were eliminated from the 2014 World Cup on home soil following a 7-1 loss against Germany.
“We cannot rewrite the past, it will not change,” Dunga said.
“The important thing is to do a good job now. We talked with the players about how we can recover from what happened, to get back the confidence of the fans and play for the pleasure of being in the national team and obviously, to win.
“The colour of our shirt is very strong as is our history within world football, we are five times world champion, so it always weighs a lot,” he said.
“Moreover, the fact that great champions have played with this jersey and there are many Brazilian players playing around the world, not only in Europe.
“It means Brazil has a great reputation worldwide, regardless of the outcome.”
