The change comes after Spain's disappointing World Cup last-16 exit on penalties to Morocco on Tuesday. Enrique's contract had been due to expire at the end of the year and the RFEF issued a statement on Thursday indicating it would not be renewed.
Tite joined in a dance on the touchline with several of his players as Brazil raced into a 4-0 half-time lead in Monday's last-16 tie. The celebrations were widely condemned, including by ITV pundit Roy Keane, who said it was more like "Strictly" than the World Cup, but Tite insist it is a part of Brazilian culture. "I am very sorry but I will not make comment on those who do not know Brazilian history or Brazilian culture, the way each and every one of us is," Tite said.
The Active Lives survey by grassroots funding body Sport England records levels of physical activity among children aged five to 16 for the 2021-22 academic year. It found girls' participation in football had improved dramatically since the first survey in 2017-18, with this year's data gathered prior to Sarina Wiegman's team winning the European Championship on July 31. Overall it found 3.4million children (47.2 per cent of those surveyed) were classed as active, meaning levels of activity on the whole had recovered to pre-pandemic levels.
