BR - The simple answer to the question above is no. Brazil have played three games under the 2002 World Cup winning coach and have failed to secure even a single victory among them. However, that is not to say that recent fixtures have been in vain.
Ties with England, Italy and Russia were never going to be easy. England's last competitive defeat in regulation time came at the 2010 World Cup, Italy were runners up at last year's European Championship and Russia, under Fabio Capello, have become a stubborn unit that are currently breezing through World Cup qualifying.
