Dunga fumes after Kaka sees red

Brazil coach Dunga was left fuming at referee Stephane Lannoy after he dismissed Kaka towards the end of their 3-1 victory over Ivory Coast in Johannesburg.

The 88th-minute red card for the Real Madrid midfielder came after an off-the-ball incident with Kader Keita.

The result of the game already looked to be settled after Luis Fabiano’s brace and an Elano strike had helped the South Americans take a 3-1 lead, with the reply coming from Didier Drogba.

“It was a totally unjustified sending-off of Kaka,” Dunga said afterwards. “It was a very complicated game, a very physical game I might add.”
