Dunga honoured as new FIFA/SOS ambassador

11/05/2006 - Last week, Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro played host to the "FIFA for SOS Children's Villages" ambassador awarding ceremony of Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, who in the football world is known simply as "Dunga". The captain of Brazil's 1994 FIFA World Cup™ championship team accepted his ambassador's certificate with humility and pledged to support SOS Children's Villages and especially the 6 villages for 2006 campaign.
