The Manchester United legend was unimpressed with the manner in which the Selecao celebrated their goal.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hit out at the Brazilian national team for their goal celebration against Korea Republic in Monday's Round of 16 encounter. The former Irish international criticised the Selecao and their head coach Tite for being 'disrespectful' towards their adversary by choosing to dance after taking a comfortable lead in the night's affair.

Brazil staged one of the best performances of the tournament so far by hitting Korea Republic for four in the first 45 minutes of their meeting. Vinicius Jr broke the deadlock inside the first seven minutes before Neymar Jr doubled the lead from the penalty spot six minutes later. Richarlison then combined with Thiago Silva to score another goal of the tournament contender before Lucas Paqueta made it four with an assist from Vinicius Jr.

In the aftermath of all the goals, the 'Samba Boys' added to the fun by displaying their traditional dancing moves. At one instance, the South Americans went over to their dugout and invited head coach Tite to join in the celebrations with his own unique dancing moves. However, the antics of the Brazilians have not been received in good faith by Roy Keane who insist that they did not show respect to their opponents with their actions.

Speaking on ITV during the half-time break, he said: "I've never seen so much dancing. It's like watching Strictly. I just can't believe what I'm watching. I really can't. Brazil, Fantastic. South Korea. My goodness!

"I don't like it. I know. Eni's [Aluko] made the point about culture. But I think that's really disrespecting the opposition.

"It's 4-0 and they are doing it every time. I don't mind the first kind of jig, whatever they're doing, it's the one after that. And then the manager getting involved with it. No I'm not happy with it. I don't think it's good at all."

On social media, Brazil's celebrations have divided opinions with some fans siding with Roy Keane while others hold a contrary view. All in all, the Selecao are through to the quarter-final and are set for a showdown with Croatia at the Education City Stadium on December 9th.
