Carlos Dunga In Italy To Monitor Brazilian Players - Report

The Selecao tactician is on a European mission to keep his players under the microscope...
Brazil coach Carlos Dunga is flying to Italy this week where he will begin his European tour in an attempt to assess the form of his stars scattered around the continent.

According to La Repubblica, the former Fiorentina player will arrive in the peninsula this weekend to watch the showdown derby d'Italia between Juventus and Inter in Turin where he will keep an eye on Julio Cesar. He is then scheduled to travel to Milan to keep tabs on Kaka, Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato when the Rossoneri welcome struggling Torino on Sunday.

The Brazilian will move around Europe to get an idea of how all of his aces are getting on. It will give Dunga a clearer picture for when he picks his squad to face Uruguay and Paraguay for the South Africa 2010 World Cup qualifiers in June. The Selecao will play Uruguay on June 6 before taking on Paraguay three days later in an attempt to catch up with the group leaders.

Dunga and his men will then head off to South Africa a week later for the Confederations Cup.
