RIO DE JANEIRO - Vasco da Gama's Vagner
Mancini became the eighth coach from the 20 teams in Brazil's
top flight to be sacked this year after they lost to Americano
in the Carioca championship.
Wednesday's 3-2 home defeat was the third in a row in the
Rio state championship for Vasco, South American champions in
1998, who were promoted back to the first division last year.
Brazil's 27 state championships precede the Brazilian
national championship that begins in May but goes into recess
for the June 11-July 11 World Cup finals in South Africa before
resuming in mid-July.
