Brazil, whose players are focusing purely on fitness work and conditioning as they begin their preparations for the World Cup, will be heading for South Africa on Wednesday.
Dunga’s squad has been undergoing physical tests since players reported for national-team duty in the southern city of Curitiba on Friday, and has not yet practiced on the field.
The squad will stay in Brazil until Wednesday, before heading for South Africa for the final stage of its preparations ahead of its first match at the World Cup - against North Korea on June 15.
Inter Milan players Julio Cesar, Maicon and Lucio, who helped the Italian club win the Champions League on Saturday, are not expected to report to the Brazil squad until Thursday.
