However, that didn't prevent legendary Brazil forward Ronaldo de Lima from enjoying it when he was taught the dance.

Brazil literally danced their way to quarter-final qualification following their comprehensive 4-1 victory over South Korea on Monday evening.

However, Brazil's trademark dance celebrations have taken the sting out of the result, with a section of fans labelling the Samba-styled jubilation as 'disrespectful'.

Richarlison, who scored his third goal of the tournament, pulled out his pigeon dance with his coach Tite after scoring in the Selacao's first-half mauling of South Korea.

In a video posted on Twitter, spotted by Sports Brief, Tite is not the only one who has been taught the dance. Richarlison was also sighted teaching ex-Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo how to break out the dance.

Ruthless Brazil crush South Korea

Neymar returned from injury to help inspire Brazil to a 4-1 victory over South Korea on Monday, as the favourites cruised through to the quarter-finals.

The world's most expensive player had missed his team's last two matches with a sprained ankle, which he suffered in their 2-0 win against Serbia.

Neymar returned for their last 16 tie against the Tigers of Asia, with the Selecao finding a new gear and also making a dire statement to the rest of their opposition.

Brazil dance to victory

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that a ruthless Brazil cruised to a lead of four goals within 36 minutes, making light work out of their round-of-16 clash with South Korea.

Having suffered their first group stage defeat since 1998 against Cameroon, the five-time world champions turned on the heat against the Group H runners-up.

Vinicius Junior began the demolishing exercise, when he connected with a cut-back pass from tricky winger Raphinha after just seven minutes.
