World Cup winner Dunga has praised the 2014 World Cup and lauded teams that have gone all out attack and created one of the most exciting and dramatic competitions in recent memory.

The former Brazil boss spoke to Marca about the competition and how the hosts have done so far.

Dunga praised the atmosphere, he said: "It’s a really good World Cup, in truth, as most of them are.

“This is special, because of the atmosphere in the stadiums, the Brazilian climate and because we are seeing a lot of goals.

“The teams are going out on the attack, to score goals, and we have seen some great games.”

Dunga was in charge of Brazil for the last World Cup in South Africa but exited the competition at the quarter-final stages.

The hosts have reached the quarter-finals again but have failed to truly fire thus far, the 50-year-old believes eventually they will fire.

He added: “Brazil are winning and in the quarter-finals, which is the most important thing.

“But it is true that their performances have not been consistent and we have not seen the Brazil we all know, but as long as they are getting through the playoffs, there is time for progress to be made.”
