(Videos) Brazil STORM into early three-goal lead against South Korea

Posted by

Brazil are taking on South Korea in the World Cup Round of 16 this evening for the right to face Croatia in the last eight at the weekend.

Despite the shocks that we have seen at this World Cup so far, it seems as though Brazil are already one step away from the quarters, scoring three goals in the first half an hour against Paulo Bento’s side.

It took the Selecao six minutes to open the scoring, when Vinicius Jr. rifled a shot into the net from close range following Raphina’s pass.

Six minutes later, Richarlison was fouled inside the area and Neymar, on his return to the slide, calmly slotted his spot-kick home.

And then just before the half hour mark, they made it three, when Richarlison kept possession superbly before receiving a defence-splitting pass from Thiago Silva and finishing with aplomb.

A sorry state of affairs for South Korea, who look to be down and out already, but against Brazil, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
