World CupSouth Korea 1-5 Brazil

South Korea 1-5 Brazil

Brazil produces an outstanding performance to defeat South Korea 5-1 in Seoul and extend a run of victories by a four-goal margin to four games.

Richarlison opened the scoring for Tite’s men, but Hwang Ui-Jo cancelled his effort with a fine strike.

However, the Selecao responded as Neymar scored two penalties with the aid of VAR on both occasions after Alex Sandro was fouled twice in the box.

Philippe Coutinho slammed home a strike on the volley before Gabriel Jesus scored the pick of the punch with a brilliant run and finished to cap off a fine display from the visitors.

Starting lineup:

SOUTH KOREA (4-3-3): Kim Seung-gyu; Lee Yong, Kwon Kyung-Won, Kim Young-Gwon, Hong Chul; Hwang In-Beom, Jung Woo-young, Paik Seung-Ho; Hwang Hee-chan, Hwang Ui-jo, Son Heung-min.

BRAZIL (4-3-3): Weverton; Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex Sandro; Fred, Casemiro, Neymar; Raphinha, Richarlison, Lucas Paqueta.

Goals:

BRAZIL 1-0!!!!!! The Selecao are in front now as Richarlison flicks Fred’s strike from close range past Seung-gyu. Alex Sandro drives into the inside-left channel and cuts a dangerous low ball into the middle for Fred. The midfielder steers a strike towards the net, where Richarlison reacts to flick it into the roof of the net.

1-1!!!! South Korea are back in the game as the forward turns in the final third before burying a precise strike past Weverton. Ui-Jo collects an offload from Hwang Hee-Chan on the edge of the box and fends off Thiago Silva, turning past the defender to open up space for a shot. He connects with power on his right foot, sending it away from Weverton and to find the net in the left corner.

2-1!!!!!! The forward is excellent from the spot as he takes a stutter-step before side-footing his effort into the net, sending Seung-gyu the wrong way. A superb penalty from the Paris Saint-Germain man.

 3-1 BRAZIL!!!! The Selecao extend their lead as Neymar slots home another effort from 12 yards. He does another stutter-step and a giant stride before sending Seung-gyu the wrong way, finding the bottom-right corner.

COUTINHO FINDS THE TOP-RIGHT CORNER!!! 4-1!!!! South Korea get themselves in a mess at the back, and Coutinho is on the spot to fire home on the volley. Young-Gwon fails to clear a Vinicius header, and the ball falls perfectly for Coutinho in the inside-left channel. He strikes the ball first-time and produces a clinical finish to find the net.

5-1!!!!!!! Brazil scores their fifth as Jesus produces a mesmeric run and finish to cap an impressive performance from the visitors. The forward cuts in from the right flank with a mazy run, slowly drifting through challenges. Jesus then produces a fine finish on his left foot to find the bottom-left corner. A fantastic goal from the Manchester City man.

So, what’s next?

Both teams are next in action on Sunday in other friendly matches. South Korea host Chile in Daejeon, while Brazil takes on Japan in Tokyo.
