Tite Resigns After Brazil's Defeat To Croatia

Brazil head coach Tite has left his role after their shock World Cup quarter-final exit at the hands of Croatia, Sky Sports reported.

Croatia defeated the five-time world champions 4-2 in the penalty shootout win at the Education City Stadium after the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Croatia, who needed two shootouts and an extra-time win to reach the final in 2018, kept their composure as Brazil’s Marquinhos and Rodrygo failed to convert, while Nikola Vlasic, Lovro Majer, Luka Modric and Mislav Orsic completed a perfect set of spot-kicks.

The European nation booked a place in the World Cup semi-finals as the hot tournament favourites crashed out. Manager Zlatko Dalic said afterwards:

We eliminated the biggest favourites.

Tite, who had been in charge since 2016 after replacing Dunga, had said in February it was always his intention to stand down after this tournament.
