SPORTWorld Cup 2018: Brazil coach, Tite blasts Neymar, team-mates after defeat to Belgium

Brazil coach, Tite has accused Neymar and the rest of his Selecao teammates of not being clinical enough in front of goal, as they lost 2-1 to Belgium in their 2018 World Cup quarter-final tie on Friday night.

The South Americans had 26 attempts on goal during the match, only seven of which were on target.

Tite, 57, was left ruing his team’s missed opportunities after the final whistle.


“I thought it was a great match and we had a lot of it, with plenty of possession and a lot of opportunities. But Belgium were more effective in converting their opportunities,” he told reporters during his post-match press conference.

“They have a lot of top players and finished well. [Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut] Courtois also made a real difference. It was a very impressive game between two games with fantastic technical qualities.

“For all the pain I feel right now, if you like football, you have to watch this game. It’s going to give you pleasure. If you’re a neutral, you can sit back and say ‘What a match!’ Anyone who appreciates football can see that this was a beautiful game.”
