Brazil Coach Dunga : Our Main Rivals In The World Cup Will Be England & Spain

Carlos Dunga

The coach is already thinking ahead to the World Cup.

Dunga, the coach of the Brazilian national team, has continued to study his team’s biggest competition eight months ahead of the beginning of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Brazil will win the South American World Cup qualifying group with a victory over Venezuela on Wednesday, but the coach isn’t only thinking about that game, but the opponents that await his side next year.

“All of the coaching staff adores football. That is why we observe everything. There are teams who have impressed us, like England, who qualified for the World Cup easily, and also Spain, who are playing great football,” said Dunga.

England have claimed eight victories, and suffered one defeat in Group 8 of the European World Cup qualifiers. Spain, the champions of Europe, won all nine of the matches they played. Dunga has observed both teams during their campaigns.

“Other teams will grow during the competition, teams like Italy, Germany, and Argentina. It will depend a lot on the moment, when it gets closer, and in what form the players find themselves.”

In reference to the River Plate derby between Uruguay and Argentina on Wednesday, Dunga favours the chances of Los Albicelestes.

“Uruguay will have to come out for the win, they will play to win the game and they will give space to Argentina, who will play better,” he concluded.
