DID YOU KNOW ?

Abel Braga earned just one cap for the Brazilian national football team, on April 19, 1978 versus England, but he was in the Brazilian 23-man squad for the the FIFA World Cup 1978 in Argentina.

After having won Copa Libertadores with SC Internacional, IFFHS ranked him as the sixth best club coach in the world in 2006.

On May 30, 2013 after the elimination of Fluminense against Paraguayan Club Olimpia from Copa Libertadores, Braga was humiliated by rival fans when the team returned back home.
