Socceroos legend Craig Foster blasts Roy Keane for criticizing Brazilian dance World Cup stars

Socceroos legend Craig Foster slams Premier League great Roy Keane for calling Brazil stars ‘disrespectful’ for daring to dance while celebrating their demolition of South Korea

Former Socceroo Craig Foster has blasted Manchester United legend Roy Keane after accusing Brazil of disrespecting the opposition because the World Cup favorites danced after every goal in their 4-1 demolition against South Korea on Tuesday.

Keane beat Brazil’s free goalscoring stars, who were rife in the first half in Qatar as Vinicius Jnr, Neymar, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta all found the back of the net – with coach Tite even joining in the celebrations.

The scenes enraged Keane, who felt like he was watching the hit British TV show Strictly Come Dancing.

“Fantastic finish from Vinicius, great start to the game. But I’ve never seen so much dancing,” fumed ITV pundit Keane.

“I can’t believe what I’m watching. I don’t like it. People say it’s their culture. But I think it’s really disrespecting the opposition.

Keane had a supporter in former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness who called the dance a “mess”.

“It’s only a matter of time before someone runs through one of these Brazilians,” added the fiery Scot.

Foster disagreed, saying anyone who complained about the celebrations walked out with “total rubbish”.

“Thank God for Brazil in football,” he said during SBS post-match coverage.

“When they turn it on, it’s a very rare sight and it’s part of the beautiful game. They were one of the nations that invented that sometimes you can see it again, and you have to see it.

“I see on social media that some people are not happy with the dancing – total rubbish.

“It’s Brazil, that’s what it’s all about.”

Fans supported Foster’s take on Keane’s outburst, with one calling him a “miserable asshole” and another calling him a “stiff, boring man”.

One football fan has pointed out the Irishman should know all about disrespect on the pitch after receiving 13 red cards in his career, while another called him a ‘caricature of an old man grumpy”.

Brazil will then face Croatia in the quarter-finals on Saturday from 2am (AEDT).

The Samba Kings are the most impressive nation in the Middle East to date ahead of England and Portugal.
