Brazil coach Tite did not produce the night’s smoothest dance moves but the sight of the sober-suited elder statesman gyrating with his players on the touchline epitomised this football carnival.

Tite cut an incongruous figure among his players but he simply could not resist joining a communal samba as Brazil put down the biggest marker at this World Cup with a dazzling victory against South Korea that sets up a quarter-final with Croatia on Friday.

And what a moment it was that inspired Tite, 61, to let it all hang out, as Brazil produced the tournament’s best football in a 4-1 win that had their status as World Cup favourites stamped right through it.

Richarlison had just made his second entry into the showreel for the greatest goals scored in Qatar, delivering Brazil’s third after only 29 minutes of a first half that will live long in the memory.
