Brazil players rushed to the dugout after Richarlison have put the five time World champion 3-0 up inside 30 minutes in which head Coach Tite joined into the celebration.
Brazil added to their tally just before half-time in what was a brutal attacking display of attacking Football, but Kane speaking on ITV said he wasn’t impressed with their antics.
“I can’t believe what I’m watching, it’s like watching Strictly,” Roy Kean said on TV
He further added “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.”
Brazil coach Tite speaking after the match said it was not their intentions to disrespect South Korea but to help him bond with his young team.
“There’s no interpretation other than happiness at our goal, happiness for the team, happiness for our performance,” he said.
“There was no disrespect for the opposition nor towards [South Korea coach] Paulo Bento for whom I have a lot of respect.
“We try to adapt to the characteristics of the players. They are very young and I try to adapt a bit to their language, and part of their language is dancing.”
Brazil’s resounding 4-1 victory at stadium 974 against South Korea sent them into the World Cup Quarter Finals, Where they will face 2018 Runners-up Croatia on Friday.
