Brazil was jeered by their own fans in their opening Copa America game against Bolivia despite winning 3-0.
Barcelona forward Philippe Coutinho scored twice and Everton netted a superb third late on in Sao Paulo.
Fans at the Morumbi stadium, which was around 70% full, booed Brazil at the break after a goalless first half in the Group A match.
Manager Tite said he “expected” a negative reaction from supporters after his team’s lacklustre performance.
“We felt it … young lads feel it, the coach feels it.” the 56-year-old said.
“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.”
