New Brazil football coach Dunga is raring to go and is taking the upcoming friendly against Japan, at the Singapore Sports Hub, very seriously.
Dunga is looking forward to the game
In a short video message about his thoughts on the upcoming Japan vs Brazil clash, Dunga admits that he simply can’t wait for the match.
He said, “We are looking forward to 14 October so that we can display our footballing talent against Japan, one of the biggest and best Asian teams. We are eagerly anticipating coming over to play and so we are inviting everyone to come and participate in a great event in Singapore.”
An A-list line-up for the friendly match
Last week, Dunga had also announced an A-list line-up for the Japan v Brazil clash, featuring a mouth-watering array of talent, captained by Selecao ace, Neymar.
