Barcelona superstar Neymar is a major hope for the Brazilian national team at the Rio 2016 Olympic tournament.
After having missed out on Olympic gold in previous years, Brazil are searching for the only title that has eluded their cabinet so far. On paper, the Brazil national team coming into the tournament is certainly not the strongest but it has one major positive in the form of Neymar. The Barcelona striker has been included as part of the three overage players allowed in the squad. However, national team boss Tite claims
that it is not right to expect everything from the 24-year-old alone.

Dunga has dismissed claims that superstar Neymar has had to face a suspension due to his role as captain calling him to be involved in numerous duels.
Neymar is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, but he has been unable to make much impact for the national team of late.

The press in Brazil is after Dunga’s head and wants him to be thrown out as coach of the national side without delay.
Joining in, some of the legends of the country’s football have also been lambasting him for his dictatorship, accusing him of taking the joy out of the players they once had while representing the nation.

Brazil national team boss Dunga has criticised the attitude of Real Madrid defender Marcelo, who has favoured playing for his club Real Madrid rather than the national team.
During the recent World Cup 2018 qualifying games against Uruguay and Paraguay, Marcelo was unavailable for selection. However, he was available for Real Madrid and it has led to a lot of debate about the future of the defender at international level. It has also started a war of words between the two camps with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane claiming that Brazil were a lot of lies.

Brazil were involved in a 2-2 draw with Uruguay in the latest World Cup qualifying match.
The result disappointed manager Dunga especially given that his team were having a comfortable 2-0 lead after just 27 minutes. Edinson Cavani pulled one back for Uruguay at 31st minute and this seemed to give the away team a lot of hope that they can get something out of the game. After the half-time break, former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez once again proved his impeccable value to the Uruguay team by scoring a second-half equaliser upon his return to international action.

Brazil’s national team manager Dunga believes that it is time for Neymar to be crowned as the FIFA Ballon d’Or award winner.
The title has been shared between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the past seven seasons. However, both these players do not enjoy the same kind of supremacy that they did during this period. Neymar has emerged as a real alternative to the title after having performed well in the last 12 months. The Brazilian striker has especially been more prolific in the second half of 2015. This has seen him make it into the three-man shortlist for the award.
