The Selecao managed to reach the World Cup quarter-finals after a dominant display against their Asian rivals.

Roy Kean has criticized Brazil for their “disrespecting” celebrations against South Korea.

The Selecao smashed their opponents 4-1, securing a spot in the quarter-finals. Following their third goal of the night, Tite joined his players for a dance by the touchline.

The Brazilian manager insisted he meant no disrespect by the celebration. But Kean wasn’t impressed by the way the Selecao expressed their happiness after the goals.

 “I can’t believe what I’m watching, it’s like watching Strictly [Come Dancing],” Keane said on ITV.

“I don’t like this. People say it’s their culture. But I think that’s really disrespecting the opposition. It’s four goals, and they are doing it every time.

“I don’t mind so much the first jig, it’s the one after that, and the manager getting involved. I’m not happy about it. I don’t think it’s good at all.”

Speaking after the game, Richarlison revealed the celebration with Tite was rehearsed beforehand.

“We rehearsed that celebration together with [the] coach in the hotel and I am happy we had a chance to use it,” Richarlison said (via The Telegraph).

Brazil will meet Croatia in the World Cup quarter-finals on Friday.
