Dunga: Individuals don't win tournaments

Reuters

Former Seleção boss Dunga praised the team mentality at Argentina and Brazil, claiming that teams and not individuals win World Cups.

Dunga also believes that Spain have some way to go before they can be considered the gretest international team ever.

"Spain have won only one World Cup and they have been successful just for the past four years. Let them win at least two more World Cups and then we can talk about their pedigree," he told the Times of India.

"An individual can't win you a tournament. For a team to succeed, you need your star players to be surrounded by a host of other quality players. Ronaldo is very talented but his teammates are ordinary.

"Messi is more experienced now, while Neymar is growing in confidence. Both Brazil and Argentina have a team to support their star players."

Dunga coached Brazil for four years between 2006 and 2012 before he was replaced by Mano Menezes after Brazil's poor showing at the 2010 World Cup.
