Dunga: AC Milan's Pato already a great

Brazil coach Dunga was delighted with the goal scoring debut of AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato in Wednesday night's friendly against Sweden.

The teenager opened his international account just 12 minutes after his entry at the Emirates Stadium when he took full advantage of goalkeeper Rami Shaaban's mistimed charge.

It has been almost 40 years since a Selecao player scored on his debut and Dunga remarked: "Pato has only played 40-odd games as a professional, but he is already a great."
