“The game is about respect,” said Roy Keane, doubling down on Brazil coach Tite for the country’s goal celebrations at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Roy Keane The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland player recently criticized Brazil’s manager Tite for dancing with his team after their 4-1 win against South Korea at the World Cup. Keane, now an ITV Sport expert, believes Tite’s celebration is disrespectful to his opponents.

Coach Tite reacted to Keane’s comments ahead of Brazil’s quarterfinal match against Croatia on Friday at Education City Stadium. He claimed that those who criticized his dance were not aware of his dance. “Brazil history and culture” – however, Keane stays true to his original view.

Keane said Sky Bet “I don’t understand how a coach can dance while the match is in progress, there is an opposing coach ten meters away from him. The game is based on respect. Then dance in the locker room or in the nightclub.” Vinicius Junior is among many Brazilians responding to Keane’s statements.

Brazil – Croatia

On December 9, Brazil and Croatia will face each other in the quarter-finals of the Qatar World Cup. This will be the two times the two countries have faced each other in the tournament. Croatia, who finished second at the 2018 World Cup, took a win over Japan after tense penalty shootouts, in which goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic saved three shots. By comparison, Brazil had a clearer victory over South Korea, with offensive units displaying outstanding form and scoring four goals together.

Brazil has a decisive advantage when it comes to their overall record of three wins and one draw in their four matches against Croatia. Two of these four took part in the FIFA World Cup, and the other two are friendlies. The first match between the two countries was an international friendly match that ended in a 1-1 draw in 2005, in which Ricardinho scored for Brazil and Niko Kranjcar for Croatia. The most recent fixture took place before the 2018 World Cup, with Brazil winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino.

Brazil competed against six teams in the FIFA World Cup and Croatia is one of them. The South American country has won both matches against Croatia without fail so far. The two sides first faced each other at the 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany, and Brazil won 1-0 in the group stage with a goal from Kaka. The last World Cup match between the two teams took place in 2014, when Brazil as the host nation definitively won against Croatia 3-1 in the first match of the tournament.
