The Brazilian Football Federation have confirmed Dunga has been dismissed following the country's elimination from the FIFA World Cup.


Dunga indicated he was likely to leave his post after Brazil's hopes of a sixth World Cup triumph were ended by the Netherlands in Port Elizabeth on Friday.


"Ending the cycle of work that began in August 2006, and ended with the elimination of Brazil from the World Cup in South Africa, the CBF announces that the technical committee of the national team has been released," the statement on the CBF's official website read. "The new technical committee will be announced later this month."


Dunga, former Brazil coach:"During the last four years, I have been very happy to coach this Brazil team."


Brazil let slip a 1-0 half-time lead to suffer a shock 2-1 loss to the Dutch. They had started the tournament well, wins over Korea DPR and Côte d'Ivoire and a draw with Portugal seeing them progress from the 'Group of Death' in first place. They swept Chile aside 3-0 in the last 16.
