For the goal, Silva found himself a bit further forward than he’s used to as he positioned himself on the edge of the penalty area, receiving a pass from Lucas Paqueta before slipping in Richarlison who slotted the ball past Kim Seung-Gyu in the South Korea goal.

A moment to savour for the Chelsea central defender, who continues to prove why he is still one of the best defenders in the world, even in the 20th year of his professional career.
