Manager Tite even got involved after Richarlison ran over to the dugout after scoring Brazil’s third goal.
The game finished 4-1 as Brazil booked their quarter-final place against Croatia
But Keane could not understand the players’ antics and likened it to an episode of Strictly Come Dancing.
He said on ITV’s coverage of the match: “I can’t believe what I’m watching. Obviously brilliant, brilliant by Brazil.
“Fantastic finish by Vinicius, great start to the game. But I’ve never seen so much dancing.
“It’s like watching Strictly. I can’t believe what I’m watching.”
He added: “I don’t like this. People say it’s their culture. But I think that’s really disrespecting the opposition.
“It’s four goals, and they are doing it every time.
“I don’t mind so much the first jig, it’s the one after that, and the manager getting involved. I’m not happy about it. I don’t think it’s good at all.”
Souness also found the dancing distasteful, calling it a “shambles”.
He added: “It’s only a matter of time before someone goes right through one of these Brazilians.”
Fans found Keane’s comments hilarious with one saying: “Hahaha Roy Keane is in the mood!”
Another added: “It’s like watching Strictly!” is a predictably great line from Roy Keane.”
And a third said: “Roy Keane is an absolute legend. How can he say I’m watching Strictly 😂.”
The Brazil stars paid a touching tribute to World Cup hero Pele after he was rushed to hospital earlier this week.
Pele, 82, was hospitalised earlier this week after he stopped responding to chemotherapy as he battles bowel cancer.
And Brazil players paid homage to the World Cup great by bringing a special poster onto the pitch after thrashing South Korea 4-1.
Fans also paid their own tribute before kick off as they brought a flag which shows an older Pele hugging a traditional black and white football paired with an image of him while playing for Santos.
Pele is the only man to have won three World Cups – in 1958, 1962, and 1970.
