Dunga's return as Brazil coach has brought a quick fix after their traumatic World Cup when more profound, long-term changes were needed.The combination of joyless football and impressive results is all too familiar following Dunga's previous spell in charge between the years 2006 and 2010 .Dunga turned Brazil into a brutally efficient counterattacking machine, winning the 2007 Copa America and storming through the World Cup qualifying competition.It all went down the drain when Brazil came up against a feisty, provocative Netherlands side in the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals, where they were unable to react after falling 2-1 behind.Since then, Dunga has had only a brief stint in charge of Internacional, his hometown club from Porto Alegre. Dunga's discourse is still punctuated by words such as work, order, hierarchy, organization and commitment.
