Brazil v Croatia, WC third quarter-final, after Selecao beat South Korea 4-1

Vincius Junior opened the scoring in the 7th minute, with a lobbed shot from the box over the Korean goalkeeper and defenders (1-0).

Neymar Junior then made it 2-0, in the 13th minute, from a penalty kick.

The South Koreans replied through In-Beom Hwang, whose very good shot was cleared by Alisson from the corner (min. 17).

The Brazilians then drew a textbook phase and Richarlison made it 3-0 in the 29th minute with a shot from the box from Raphina’s pass in the lane.

The score at halftime was established by Lucas Paqueta, who received an ideal pass in a central position, inside the box, from where he beat goalkeeper Seung-Gyu Kim for the fourth time (4-0, min. 36).

In the second half, it was played beautifully, with fair play, with successive phases at both goals. Heung-Min Son ticked over the Koreans’ first big chance, his shot being blocked by Alisson.

Raphinha then set up Seung-Gyu Kim twice, with South Korea again very close to a first goal in the 70th minute, when in a confused phase in front of the 6-yard box, the Asians failed to score after 3 shots on goal.

The South Korean fans were rewarded in the 76th minute, the insistence of the Asian footballers being realized in the goal by an exceptional shot from 25 meters sent by Seung-Ho Paik (4-1).

Against the background of a relaxation of the Brazilians, who introduced goalkeeper Weverton to the field, the Asians launched several offensive actions, scoring in the artistic chapter.

It ended 4-1, with the Brazilians set to meet Croatia in the quarter-finals on December 9 at 5pm.
