Brazil has sacked its coach, Dunga after the country failed to get out of the group stage at the Copa America Centenario.

Brazil lost to Peru by a 1-0 margin on Sunday thanks to a controversial goal that appeared to come off the hand of striker Raul Ruidiaz.

But the manner of the defeat was not enough for Dunga to retain his job, as the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) relieved him of his duties after he returned from the United States on Tuesday.
