Current Brazilian Senior National team coach- Dunga
After a shocking defeat in the hands of Peru, Brazilian head coach, Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri popularly known as Dunga has expressed fear of his life when he returns to his homeland instead of his job as the team's coach.

Brazil exited this year's Copa America tournament with a 1-0 loss to Peru in Foxborough on Sunday with 15 minutes to the end of the game.

This the second time that Dunga has crushed out of a major tournament with the samba boys and he was booted out in his first spell with the team, but the 52-year-old seems unperturbed.

"The president of the federation knows what we do and how we work," he said.

"When you work for the Brazilian team, you know very well that the criticism will intensify when results do not come.

"In Brazil we want everything to change in two minutes, but in football you must be patient.

"I do not fear dismissal, I am only afraid of death."

Since 1987, this is the first time that the eight-time Copa America winners have failed to progress beyond the group stage.
