Brazil cruised into the World Cup quarter-finals last night with an emphatic win over South Korea.

Tite’s side ran out 4-1 winners and celebrated in typical Samba style by dancing after each goal.

However, Seleção’s dancing has earned them plenty of criticism from many pundits, especially Roy Keane.

Unsurprisingly, the former Manchester United midfielder was not best pleased by Brazil’s antics.

Keane claimed that Brazil were very disrespectful to South Korea for dancing after each goal.

West Ham United midfielder Lucas Paquetá was involved in the goals and the dancing.

The 25-year-old has hit back at Keane’s criticism by telling O Globo: “The dance is a representation of our joy after scoring a goal.

“We don’t do it to disrespect anyone, we don’t do it in front of our opponents.

“We all get together to celebrate. If they don’t like it, there’s not much to say.

“We’ll keep scoring goals and keep dancing.

“This is a group that is happy to score, to get the victory and the goals.”
