Roy Keane, the Brazilian dance ceremony
Manchester United legend Roy Keane (51) criticized Brazil’s dance ceremony.
He lost 1-4 in the round of 16 against Brazil at the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup at 974 Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 4 a.m. on the 6th (Korea Standard Time). South Korea, which reached the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years, will complete its World Cup journey.
Brazil drove South Korea from the first half. In the 6th minute of the first half, Vinicius Junior scored the first goal. Neymar then scored a penalty kick in the 12th minute. In the 28th minute, Brazil broke down the Korean defense with a pass play inside the penalty box and Hishalisson finished. In the 35th minute, Lucas Pacquetta finished the cross taken by Vinicius and widened the gap by four goals. South Korea recovered with Baek Seung-ho’s powerful mid-range shot in the 30th minute of the second half, but failed to score additional points.
The Brazilian players always gathered together and jumped and danced after scoring. After the ceremony, Hishalisson also performed a dance ceremony with director Kachi on the Brazilian bench. Keane, a Manchester United native, criticized the scene.
“It was a fantastic finish for Vinicius, and a good start,” Keane told British media ITV. But I’ve never seen so many dances,” he said, “I can’t believe what I’m seeing. I don’t like it. People say it’s Brazilian culture. But I think that’s really ignoring the opponent.”
“They’ve scored four goals, and they’re doing it every time. I didn’t really care about the first jig. Then Zig, and even the director participated, he said. “I’m not happy to see it. I don’t think that’s good at all,” he added.
But former England women’s national soccer team player Eniola Aluko, who appeared on “ITV,” said, “It’s really good. “It’s like we’re at a Brazilian party,” he said adding, “Korea made Brazil comfortable,” adding, “I can say it’s not respecting Korea, but Neymar would have done that against most teams.”
Brazil, which advanced to the quarterfinals, will face Croatia at Education City Stadium in Alaiyan, Qatar, at midnight on the 10th. Croatia won after a bloody battle with Japan to shoot-out.
