Dunga facing more pressure ignoring AC Milan ace Ronaldinho

Brazil coach Dunga lost his rag with local reporters yesterday over the continued absence of AC Milan star Ronaldinho. Ronaldinho was again overlooked for tomorrow's friendly against the Republic of Ireland.

Dunga said: "Every region of Brazil, and every newspaper is trying to impose their own players, but I'm happy to go my way forward.

"I guess it's normal, the absent players are always the best and everyone wants to talk about who was not called up by the national team. The questions and answers are always the same.

"The pressure in coaching the Brazilian national team has always been difficult."
