Brazil manager Tite was philosophical about his team getting some harsh treatment from an expectant São Paulo crowd during his team’s 3-0 Copa América win over Bolivia last night.

Brazil were tied 0-0 at half-time and left the field to a chorus of boos. But Tite said his players have enough experience to cope with crowd negativity.

“We need to understand. If we get forward and create chances then they will applaud. Having been at big clubs, when you sometimes don’t produce, then don’t expect the fans to understand.

“They will boo. When you pass the ball along the back, from full-back to central defender to goalkeeper, the first thing you hear is boo.”

The Seleção secured a comfortable victory thanks to a second half brace from Philippe Coutinho and a late solo goal from Grêmio forward Everton.
