Shiny-toe Brazilian winger Vinicius Jr. has hit back at criticism of the team’s celebration after the goal, saying he and his teammates “continue to express our joy”.
A goal against South Korea opened the floodgates in Brazil’s round of 16 matches on Monday. After saying, he spoke. Brazilian director Tite interfered with the dance.
“Scoring goals is the most important thing in football,” said the Real Madrid star. “(The dance) shows that not only are we happy, but the whole country is happy with us at the World Cup.”
Keene said the dance was “disrespectful” to his opponent.
Keane told ITV, “They do it every time. Whatever they do, they don’t care about the little gimmick at the beginning, but they do it after that and their manager sabotages it.” Told. I’m not happy with it, I don’t think it’s good at all. ”
But Vinicius Jr. disagreed with this: “Hopefully we still have many goals to celebrate, keep dancing, play well and reach the final in that rhythm. I always like to complain when I see other people happy, but Brazilians are always very happy, so we always try to influence others for good. I want to tell you that more people support us than who oppose us.”
Tait, who announced he would be stepping down after this season’s World Cup, supported his players but said he understood the optics. “There are always haters who take that as disrespectful. I told my players to hide me a little bit. I know visibility.” I didn’t want to be taken as disrespectful, but it wasn’t disrespecting to my opponent or to [Korean coach] Paulo Bento, who I have a lot of respect for.
Brazil’s flamboyant football style has always brought carnival to the field. The Samba Nation side is known for its flashy tricks and streaks that have delighted millions of people around the world with their team.
Former Watford striker Richarisson tends to celebrate goals with a pigeon dance alongside other nearby players and team officials.
But the World Cup has a long tradition of introducing fans to spectacular moves that are better suited to the dance floor. I will always remember the 1990 Italy of the great Roger Milla, the 38-year-old Cameroonian who set fire to
This started the enthusiasm for elaborate goal celebrations. Brazilian Bebet not only celebrated his three-goal-scoring goal at the 1994 World Cup but also the recent arrival of his newborn child with a “baby swing” gesture.
Keane himself noted that his raucous goal celebrations went viral on Twitter this week after scoring in a BBC-ITV 5-a-side match in Qatar. The expert scored the winning goal before taking off his shirt and jumping over a trash can.
