JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Jumping, dancing and chanting, more than 1,000 people have showed up in Soweto to get a glimpse of Brazil's practice for the World Cup.

Fans yell and wave Brazilian and South African flags as the players enter the field at the Dobsonville Stadium, and scream even louder when the Brazilians wave back to them.

Before Thursday's practice, Dunga gave a ball and a Brazilian flag to a youngster, then posed for a photo.

It's expected to be Brazil's only practice open to the public ahead of the World Cup. Brazil is not likely to give more access to the public after players and officials said fan hysteria was one of the reasons the team lost in the 2006 World Cup.
