The Brazilian Coach Resigns After Loss in The World Cup to Croatia

After six years as Brazil’s head coach, Tite announced his resignation after Friday’s quarterfinal loss to Croatia at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

This is the conclusion of the cycle, and I will follow my pledge,” the 61-year-old stated after Friday’s game. The market is flooded with qualified individuals who can take my place. You know the game is trying to tell you something when Croatia’s keeper, Dominik Livakovi, is the best player on the pitch. We needed to improve our goal-setting procedures.

Was Brazil’s best performance on display? Generally speaking, that is correct. As the leader, I accept the lion’s share of the blame, but I know that everyone shares some of the blame for this setback. This has nothing to do with good guys vs bad guys. In the world of sports, no such thing exists.

“Sometimes we put in a terrific performance, we take a shot at the net, and the ball goes wide. Nothing unusual there. The end product, though, is something I can accept. I’m sad about the loss, but I’m accepting it.


A goal by Brazil in the 117th minute prompted extra time when it was tied by Bruno Petkovic of Croatia. In the subsequent penalty shootout, Brazil was defeated by a score of 1(4)-1(2).

The fifth penalty kick was supposed to go to Brazilian superstar Neymar, who on Friday tied soccer icon Pelé for the most goals scored by a national team in history.

The fifth and final punishment is the deciding factor. “There is more pressure, and the only way to handle it is to be mentally prepared,” Tite added.

Tite has now had two World Cup teams, in 2018 and 2022, both of which were knocked out in the quarterfinals.

Tite has been Brazil’s manager since 2016, however, he has only won one major prize in that time: the 2019 Copa América, which Brazil hosted. This is Brazil’s ninth Copa America title and its first in 12 years.

Until the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, Tite was under contract with Brazil. This deal was signed in July 2018. He said in February that he planned to leave his position as Brazil’s manager after the 2022 tournament.
