thumbnail Hello,

Brazil coach Carlos Dunga talked about the Amauri situation and tomorrow's friendly against Italy.

Ahead of tomorrow's mouth-watering friendly between Brazil and Italy, the coach of the Seleçao, Carlos Dunga, still talked about the situation of striker Amauri, who was unable to respond to his country's call-up because it came too late.

"We knew that the call-up was too late," he said. "Unfortunately Juventus refused to release the player, and we respect the law.

"Amauri is being suppressed by his club? I would have never accepted it because for me the national team has always been a dream, a utopia. I looked at the great champions of the past and I dreamed of following in their footsteps. I would have never let anyone come between me and my dream."

On tomorrow's match between the two most winning sides in World Cup history, the coach said: "Even though it's not an official match and the pressure is different, but we always want to win. The motivation of the players? I think every player dreams of playing matches like this one."
