Felipe Melo who personifies Dunga's experiment provided its hypotheses and its conclusive proof: It did not work.
Melo, who if one remembers was high on Wenger's wish list last season, played with absolutely no skill. He was responsible for an own goal and then red carded. An outcome as predictable as the setting of the sun.
Now the CBF has its choice- will they accept this as proof that on the world's biggest stage Brazil failed. The Selecao went out in the last World Cup in the quarterfinals which set off Dunga's course correction. He will be deemed to have carried it too far.
Full marks to the Oranje who came back - Wesley Sneijder like he did in the CL finals, stamped his class in this match too. He might consider this as one of his crowning achievements. They meet the winners of the Ghana vs Uruguay match. Europe 1, South America 0.
