Brazil slammed for 'disrespectful' dance

For many who may not know, dance is cultural for Brazilians, and it was where they got the nickname samba boys of Brazil. To tell them not to dance is to infringe on their culture.

They faced a lot of criticism in Qatar for dancing at each goal scored but captain Neymar defended his team, claiming that is how they do it in Brazil, as quoted by Fox Sports.

Vinicius Jr racially abused for dancing

One of the events that pushed the Samba boys to dance for every goal celebrated in Qatar was the racial abuse hurled at Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr by Atletico Madrid fans, as reported by Yahoo.

He received support from many Brazilians and South Americans, including Neymar Jr and late legend Pele, who encouraged him to dance and ignore racists.

Paqueta wows teammate with moves

Sports Brief earlier reported that the West Ham midfielder got his teammate off their feet with a popular Brazil move during their UEFA Europa Conference League match last year.

The entertaining midfielder pulled off the Joga Bonito in front of the West Ham bench and it left English defender Aaron Cresswell rolling in amazement.

The 25-year-old also pulled off another skill to embarrass an opponent, sliding the ball in between his legs in a closed space. The Anderlecht player pushed him away in annoyance at fooling him.
