Brazil closed its practice for the second straight day, an unusual move that surprised even some of the players.
Brazil is usually one of the most open teams to fans and the media, but coach Dunga has been trying to keep the team sealed off ahead of its opener against North Korea next Tuesday. Neither Dunga nor any other Brazilian official said why Sunday's practice was closed, and not even the players were aware of the change ahead of time.
Brazil right back Maicon says "we just found out that it was going to be closed now."
It was the third time Dunga had kept the media from attending a team training session since Brazil arrived in South Africa nearly three weeks ago.
