Kolkata: Brazil's soccer World Cup winning captain and former coach Carlos Dunga has a prescription for lifting Indian soccer standards - follow the Japanese model.
Responding to a query from India's famous footballer of yesteryears Chuni Goswami for improving the country's performance, Dunga harped on his experience in the east Asian nation where he played the J-League between 1995 and 1998.
"When Japan started their big push in soccer, they hired lot of experienced and good players from abroad. This was to help their own young players to learn. Coaches from Brazil also went to Japan. India also can follow Japan's example," he said.
