Raí actually started the 1994 World Cup as Brazilian captain but was dropped altogether when Pelé said he should during an interview. Dunga took the captaincy and went on to lift the trophy. Four years later although playing in the lower standard J League in Japan he captained Brazil once more to the final where they lost to France.

Dunga played the anchor role in midfield extremely effectively, many players in this position lunge into tackles and put themselves about, but Dunga rarely went to ground to make a tackle instead using his anticipation and timing, his passing ability was also second to none, always starting a fresh attack and rarely wasting it.


In 1994, he often served as the captain of the team. Dunga scored the third penalty kick in the finals against Italy. He assumed the captain role for the next four years until the 1998 World Cup. The 1998 tournament was notable for the lack of teamwork. It was often visible as Dunga got into a fight with teammate Bebeto in the first round match against Morocco, forcing the rest of the team to break them up. Dunga also scored in the fourth penalty kick against the Netherlands in the semifinals.

Other than the 1994 triumph, he also played in the 1990 and 1998 World Cup editions, taking over from Rai as the captain in the 1994 World Cup and then captaining Brazil in all seven of their games in the 1998 edition.

Management

Dunga was one of those considered to replace Vanderlei Luxemburgo in 2000 as the Brazilian national coach. The reason why Dunga turned down his offer was his dislike of the way the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) was organized and managing their affairs. [citation needed] Vanderlei Luxemburgo da Silva (born May 10, 1952, in Nova Iguaçu) is a Brazilian football (soccer) coach, he is currently head coach at Santos after being unemployed for nine days, when being sacked by Real Madrid on December 4, 2005, at just over 11 months in charge. ...


On July 24, 2006, Dunga was named as the new national coach of the Brazilian national team as a replacement for Carlos Alberto Parreira, even though he has no prior coaching experience at professional level. However, he made an impressive start with Brazil, winning four of his first five matches. Zagallo has recently declared Dunga's work as the head coach of the Brazilian national team is very satisfactory. is the 205th day of the year (206th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Unlike Parreira, Dunga has focused on the task of unemphasizing all players and treating them as equals. He did not just look for players in popular clubs such as AC Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid, etc., but looked at the whole scope of Europe, finding individual talents such as Daniel Carvalho, Vagner Love and Dudu Cearense of Russian club CSKA Moscow and also Elano of English Football Club Manchester City. Of the former Magic Quartet, Ronaldinho and Kaká were the only players who had a place in the Brazilian national side on those matches, until the next year when Adriano was called back in the squad for a friendly against Portugal which Brazil lost 0-2. Dunga is yet to select the last member of the Magic Quartet, Ronaldo. Dunga recently managed Brazil to their second straight Copa America title by beating arch-rivals Argentina in the final 3-0, who were heavily favored to win against a weak Brazil squad.
