Coaches' Heads Continue To Roll

Brazil's Dunga became the latest coach to be shown the door after his team's shock 2-1 loss to The Netherlands in Port Elizabeth yesterday. Dunga joins Javier Aguirre, who quit as coach of Mexico after their 3-1 defeat to Argentina in the Round of 16, Takeshi Okada, who stepped down as manager of Japan following the Samurai Blue's penalty shootout exit to Paraguay at the same stage and Huh Jung Moo, who threw in the towel after South Korea were knocked out by Uruguay also in the first knockout stage.


Okada.

Several head coaches had already announced their intention to quit before the tournament even began including the hapless French coach Raymond Domenech, the Socceroos' Pim Verbeek and Italy's Marcello Lippi.

Fabio Capello survived an anxious waiting period from the English FA before being confirmed in his post for the 2012 European Championship qualifiers that begin in September.
