According security solution provider McAfee analysis of this spam –“In a recent spam–that appeared to be a page from a popular Brazilian newspaper–we read that the Brazilian soccer team coach Dunga had been involved in an assault. He was apparently punched in the face by two angry fans who were unhappy that he had not selected two players–Neymar and Ganso–in his 23-man roster for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa this month.”
