BRAZIL have had every reason to start a party after their stunning first half performance against South Korea.

But the partying has not been limited to the players, with 61-year-old Brazil manager Tite also getting involved.

Richarlison got Tite involved to do the “Pigeon dance”

Tite is mobbed as he tries to escape the circle of his players

After Richarlison dispatched a stunning team goal, the Tottenham striker rushed over to the technical area where Tite and the Brazil subs were waiting for him.

Once he arrived and got into the circle, the group then started celebrating together with Richarlison’s signature “Pigeon dance” with Tite kicking it off by bopping his shoulders.

He was quick to stop and get back to his bench and was enveloped by shoulder and head pats after joining in.

However, ITV co-commentator Ally McCoist was left unimpressed by the moves, jokingly saying: “Ah, he’s going to have to work on it (his moves).”

Fans online reacted to Tite’s dancing in hysterics.

One user said: “Someone clip Tite dancing with Richarlison, this country is pure good vibes.”

A second said: “The vibes are impeccable.”

Another added: “They even got Brazil Coach Tite to do the Pigeon dance

Indeed, keeping with Samba tradition there was a dance after every goal they scored.

But former Manchester United captain Roy Keane did not enjoy the dancing, and insisted it was “disrespectful” to South Korea.

Speaking on ITV, he said: “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.”

Tite has been in charge of Brazil since 2016 and won the Copa America in 2019.

Now he is hoping to guide Brazil to World Cup glory and collect a sixth star and their first since 2002.

The Last 16 clash against South Korea has seen Samba talisman Neymar return to the starting xi after there were fears he could miss the remainder of the tournament.

The Paris Saint-Germain ace picked up ankle ligament damage in the opening game against Serbia, but has made a swift recovery to boost their title credentials.

With Brazil in control of the tie they have confirmed a clash against Croatia in the quarter-finals.

2018 finalists Croatia beat Japan on penalties to progress into the next round.
