Tite Unsure about his Brazil Future after Belgian Defeat

Brazil coach Tite remained tightlipped on his future as Brazil once again contemplate a disastrous World Cup campaign. The five-time champions were unable to get past the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup, as they were beaten by Belgium 2-1. Four years ago, it was a horrendous 7-1 defeat in the semi-final that led to Brazil’s exit from the World Cup. The South Americans have been unable to win any World Cup since their last success in 2002.

Titewon a lot of praise for transforming Brazil’s fortunes after coming into the managerial role in 2016. He managed to get the national team through a string of 15 consecutive matches without a defeat. During this period,Tite was able to enjoy his team conceding just three goals. At the World Cup, however, Brazil’s defence was less than spectacular and there were nervous moments throughout the competition. It was exposed to the core by Belgium’s brilliant counter-attacking outfit, which came up with two goals in the first half to end any hopes of a comeback from Brazil. Now, the national team will have to wait another four years before trying to get a sixth World Cup title under the belt.

It remains to be seen ifTite will remain in charge of the team. The manager claimed that Belgium were slightly more efficient in front of goal but were certainly not a dominant force in the match.“I’m not going to talk about the future, I’m not thinking about the future. I will do a general assessment of the match and our campaign, but I won’t be making any comments on individuals. This is not very human. And we also have to look at the global context. We played a match in which we had lots of possession, a lot of opportunities, but in terms of effectiveness… Belgium managed to turn their opportunities into goals,” said Tite
