[REACTION] Brazil coach Dunga confirmed his plans to step down following his team's 2-1 loss to the Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. He said Felipe Melo, the game's goat, should not take the blame for the loss, but several former Brazilian stars thought otherwise.
"As the coach," Dunga said, "I think the blame belongs to us all. I take most of the blame and now would be unfair to speak of Felipe Melo. It is not the first time a player is sent off."
Felipe Melo's red card followed what was first given as an own goal -- Brazil had never given up an own goal in the World Cup -- that evened the score in the second half. (FIFA has since credited Wesley Sneijder with a goal on the cross that went off Melo's head into the goal after goalie Julio Cesar missed the ball.)
On Twitter, Ronaldo told Felipe Melo: "Don't take your vacation in Brazil this year."
"Felipe Melo is unreliable," said Falcao, a star on Brazil's 1982 World Cup team. "It was a mistake to even bring him to South Africa."
Dunga will finish with 41 wins, 12 losses and six ties as Brazil coach.
It won the 2007 Copa America and 2009 Confederations Cup but failed to win the hearts of fans and critics.
Before Friday's game, Dutch great Johan Cruyff said he would not pay to watch Brazil.
