Chelsea star Willian scored the only goal of the game as Brazil beat Ecuador 1-0 in New Jersey on Tuesday night.
The game itself was pretty poor, and not exactly the bounce-back performance Dunga had hoped for after taking over post-World Cup despite a positive result against Colombia earlier this month. Neymar, one of the few hangovers from Scolari's squad, remains captain and poster-boy for the Seleção - but he might not want to watch this game back.
The Brazilian forward missed from two yards out against his South American opponents, somehow contriving to smash a low cross up onto the crossbar when it looked easier to score.
Brazil fans will just be happy to see the 22-year-old back on the field and in a Brazil shirt, after his injury at the World Cup helped to ruin his and his country's tournament.
Willian, one of three Chelsea players in the starting lineup, scored the game's solitary goal. An Oscar free-kick worked through to Neymar, who sent the ball over the Ecuador back-line and into the path of Willian, who guided home.
West Ham signing Enner Valencia featured for Ecuador, and he had the best opportunity to equalise just six minutes after Willian's strike. The Ecuador forward struck the post with Brazil keeper Jefferson well beaten.
It was a new look Brazil squad under head coach Dunga, back for his second spell in charge of the national team.
Filipe Luis, Marquinhos, Diego Tardelli and Miranda all started the game while Nascimento Silva of Corinthians and his club mate Mendes Trindade came off the bench in the second half.
Liverpool playmaker Coutinho also made an appearance as a substitute, winning his third cap for his country, four years after he was first called up by Brazil in October 2010.
