Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar staged a remarkable comeback to rescue his international career last year and find a path into the national side for the 2014 World Cup, but most agree that his time with the national team has now come to an end.
Having been Brazil's first-choice goalkeeper for extended spells of the past decade, his omission would leave Dunga without a glaringly obvious replacement already in and around the squad setup.
Often derided for its goalkeeping options, it is simply untrue that Brazil does not possess excellent goalkeepers. However, there is a real case to be made that there is currently none befitting of automatic inclusion in the national team.
Who, then, are the leading candidates to help take the national team into a new era?
