Brazil boss Tite rues his side's missed chances during their World Cup quarter-final clash with Brazil.

Brazil manager Tite has put his side's 2-1 defeat to Belgium down to the opposition being more clinical in front of goal.

The Brazilians had 26 attempts on goal during the match, only seven of which were on target, and Tite was left ruing his team's missed opportunities after the final whistle

"I thought it was a great match and we had a lot of it, with plenty of possession and a lot of opportunities. But Belgium were more effective in converting their opportunities," he told reporters during his post-match press conference.

"They have a lot of top players and finished well. [Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut] Courtois also made a real difference. It was a very impressive game between two games with fantastic technical qualities.

"For all the pain I feel right now, if you like football, you have to watch this game. It's going to give you pleasure. If you're a neutral, you can sit back and say 'What a match!' Anyone who appreciate football can see that this was a beautiful game."

Tite also refused to comment on his future as Brazil boss during the press conference.
