CAIRO: Brazil coach Dunga said he won t be taking the Pharaohs lightly when the two teams meet in the Confederations Cup in June.

I saw some games for Egypt and I liked the way they play, Dunga was quoted as saying by the Brazilian Football Confederation s official website.

They have a good team, which can t be underestimated.

The Copa America champions have been drawn with Italy, Egypt and the United States in Group B of the competition, which will be hosted by South Africa.

Five-time World champions Brazil are the current Confederations Cup holders.

They beat archrivals Argentina 4-1 in the final of the competition hosted by Germany in 2005.

Dunga also said the group was tough in comparison to Group A that includes South Africa, New Zealand, Iraq and Spain.

We are in a very tough group. There s no exaggeration if we call it the group of death, said Dunga, who captained Brazil towards winning the World Cup in 1994.

Of course I d have loved to face easier teams at the start of the tournament, but you can t choose your opponents.

The competition kicks-off on June 14 and ends on June 28.
