The Brazilian Football Confederation named Dunga as the new Brazil head coach yesterday and the 1994 World Cup winner has acknowledged he has a lot of work to do.

After the host nation ended their World Cup with two horrific defeats to Germany and Holland, Dunga is keen to get the fans behind the team again.

The former Internacional head coach has previously managed the national team between 2006 and 2010 and is happy to have confidence in him again.

FIFA quoted Dunga, he said: "I am immensely happy - thank you for your confidence in me.

"The fans are very down right now but they are right behind the team. I am not here to sell a dream, we must get down to work."

The CBF president Jose Maria Marin praised Dunga as a “world champion” and believes he can lead Brazil to more success, like he did in his previous spell.

Marin said: "He was world champion, captain of a world champion side.

"He has what it takes to lead the Brazil team. The numbers show he absolutely has the ability to take charge."
