Tite steps down from post after Brazil’s World Cup exit

Brazil national team head coach Tite has, late on Friday, opted to bring his stint in charge of the country to a close.

The Selecao, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

After making short work of South Korea en route to the World Cup’s quarter-finals, Tite’s troops were pitted against Luka Modric and Croatia, for a spot in the competition’s final-4.

In turn, upon Neymar opening the scoring at the Education City Stadium with a full 105 minutes on the clock, it looked as though the world’s highest-ranked side were bound for precisely that.

This, however, was only until Croatia levelled things up a little over ten minutes later, forcing proceedings to a penalty shootout.

And, when all was said and done, it was the Europeans who went on to hold their nerve, converting a quartet of spot-kicks to book their place in the World Cup’s semi-finals for the 2nd occasion in succession.

And, as alluded to above, it has not taken at all long for the ensuing fallout to kick into gear.

As confirmed in an official statement late on Friday evening, Selecao head coach Tite has taken the definitive decision to step down from his post.
