In the FIFA World Cup 2022 round of 16, Brazil defeated South Korea 4-1. Brazil’s star player, Neymar, recovered from an injury to advance to the tournament’s quarterfinals, where they will play Croatia.
Brazil’s four spectacular goals in the first half set an aggressive tone for a team that was aiming for a sixth World Cup title. The game between the two teams settled down in the second period, but it was not a rough one. South Korea had competed energetically to score a reassurance goal in the 76th minute of the game.
For Brazil, it just required seven minutes to get off the mark, with Raphinha picking the ball and hurrying in on the right side, sending in an astounding pass to Neymar, who then, at that point, scores the initial objective of the game.
Within three minutes, Jung Woo-young brought Richarlison down inside the box, resulting in a penalty, and Neymar seized the opportunity right away. With less than 15 minutes remaining in the game, Brazil led 2-0.
In the 26th minute of the game, Richalison demonstrated a remarkable level of skill by putting the ball into the net to score third goal for his team after evading South Korean defenders on the edge of the South Korean box three times.
