The South Americans took an early lead after just ten minutes, through Robinho, but were pegged back after the break when Wesley Sneijder’s attempt was put into his own net by Felipe Melo.

Sneijder then gave the Dutch the lead in the 68th minute, but any hope of a Brazilian comeback was hindered by Melo’s dismissal just five minutes later.

Speaking immediately after the final whistle in Port Elizabeth, former World Cup winner Dunga expressed his surprise at his side’s early exit.

“We are all extremely sad and we didn’t expect it,” he said. “We were not able to maintain the same rhythm in the second half.

“If you play with only 10 players against a quality team like Holland then it makes it difficult.”

The 46-year-old also hinted at stepping down from his post, which he has held since July 2006.

“We knew when I started that I would be here for four years,” he said. “It’s sad, it’s difficult. Nobody prepares to lose.

“Without a shadow of a doubt, I am the coach of the Brazilian team, I have the greatest responsibility.”
