Brazil goes home after World Cup loss to Croatia
Brazil were the favorites to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but that hope was dashed on Friday when they lost in the quarterfinals to Croatia. The match ended in a 1-1 draw at the end of extra time, and Croatia won on the penalty shootout to move on to the final four as Brazil was forced to go home.
71-year-old Tite has stepped down as manager of the national team, which is not too surprising as he’s already spoken to its probability. Tite first took over as the Brazil head coach in 2016 and led them to win the Copa America in 2019.
In the World Cup, Tite led Brazil to top Group G in the group stage over Switzerland, Cameroon, and Serbia. They went on to beat South Korea 4-1 in a display of athleticism that assured many that they would win it all. Alas, the Brazilians have gone home and Tite has called it quits.
