Classic Brazil beat South Korea 4-1, face Croatia in quarterfinals

Brazil have progressed to the World Cup quarterfinals easily beating South Korea 4-1.


Fielding a much-rested side, coach Tite named the unchanged squad from the team that faced Serbia in the group stages with the attacking quartet of Richarlison, Vinicius Jr, Neymar and Raphinha all returning for the offensive against South Korea.

The forwards would prove too much for South Korea backline to handle.

And Brazil found the opener just in the 7th minute with Vinicius Jr sweeping the South Korea backline in the opposite direction before bagging the opener.

Neymar added another in the 13th minute after a foul by Kim Seung-gyu and calmly slotted it in the bottom corner.


Yet again, South Korea backline was sliced open as Richarlison linked up brilliantly with Marquinhos to Thiago Silva and finally to Richarlison who slotted it past Kim Seung-gyu.

Vinicius Jr would then assist Lucas Paqueta who volleyed it first time for his first World Cup goal.

South Korea would find a consolation goal late in the second half.
