Dunga banned for four games by Brazilian tribunal

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov 8 (Reuters) - Brazil coach Dunga has been given a provisional four-match touchline ban in friendlies by the country's disciplinary tribunal after being sent off against Mexico in September.

Dunga was dismissed in the 3-1 win over the Mexicans in a friendly for persistant dissent.

'It doesn't apply to the World Cup qualifiers, just to friendlies,' said Rodrigo Paiva, spokesman for the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

The tribunal said that Dunga would have to serve only the first two matches of the ban and the remainder of the suspension would come into effect only if he committed another offence.

It added that the decision had also to be ratified by soccer's governing body FIFA.

Brazil's next friendly is away to Ireland on Feb. 6.
