DOHA, Qatar — Brazil coach Tite has hit back at criticism of his team’s dancing goal celebrations during the 4-1 victory over South Korea in the World Cup round of 16.
Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane was among the pundits to brand the dancing “disrespectful” as Brazil comfortably booked their place in the quarterfinals of the World Cup, where they play Croatia on Friday.
But Tite said his players will continue to do it before blasting suggestions the celebrations showed a lack of respect to South Korea.
Cameras caught Tite joining in his team’s celebrations during the victory over South Korea, with the 61-year-old following Richarlison’s “pigeon dance” on the touchline.
Brazil face Croatia in the quarterfinals at Education City on Friday with a place in the last four against Argentina or the Netherlands at stake.
Croatia captain Luka Modric will line up against Real Madrid teammate Vinicius Junior and the midfielder revealed he will pass on tips about how to stop the winger.
