Brazil coach Tite has confirmed he will keep dancing when his team scores a goal ahead of Qatar’s 2022 FIFA World Cup quarter-final match against Croatia at Education City Stadium on Friday.
Tite’s words came in response to some voices criticizing the Brazilian players’ exaggeration in celebrating each of the four goals they scored against South Korea (4-1) in the final price round. Not only did the Brazilian players celebrate every goal for a long time, they even went so far as to perform what they called the “dance of the doves” along with their 61-year-old coach.
“You don’t have to do it every time. It’s disrespectful,” said former Republic of Ireland international Roy Keane. He continued, “Even their coach was involved! I do not like it”.
But Titi responded to that at Thursday’s press conference, saying: “I don’t want to comment on people who don’t know or are unfamiliar with our culture and joy. My job is to respect my job and I will stay who I am.” I respect the culture of others.
He added: Those who know me know that I love to dance and therefore I will continue to dance. Even small children dance like that, and I don’t think it humiliates anyone.
He described the Croatian national team, which finished second in the last World Cup in 2018, as having “strong tactical elements and high skill, and it’s not just about passing the ball”. And he touched on the fact that his team did not score a single goal in the first half of the group stage, beating Serbia 2:0 and Switzerland 1:0, and after qualifying lost to the auxiliary Cameroon 0:1. always like that,” knowing that Selesao scored a quadruple goal in the first 36 minutes of the match against South Korea. And he turned to the legendary Pele (82), who is recovering from a health crisis, as a result of which he ended up in the hospital in recent days: I wish you a speedy recovery, you inspire us all.
