The Brazil’s selection went smoothly to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Qatarthanks to a categorical win by 4-1 in their key against South Korea who starred this Monday at the 974 Stadium in Doha.
Only the first 45 minutes was enough Tite’s team to close the match, exploiting their “beautiful game” against an opponent who was subdued and could not react to this tremendous outburst that came upon them.
In this way, seven minutes into the first half, “Scratch” took the lead with a goal from Vinicius Jrwhile in the 13′ Neymar converted from a penalty after a violation in the area to Richarlison.
Thus the control of the Brazilians was maintained, with Alisson answering too to some middle distance attempt of the impetuous Hwang Hee Chan for the South Koreans, who stood out even more than the star Heung-Min Son. Then, at 28′ in a magnificent collective play richarlison I note the third, and in the 36′ by the same route Lucas Paqueta he put the fourth in a flurry of goals.
The second half was more than anything a process for the “Verdeamarelha” who managed their huge advantage and resisted the attacks from Korea with Alisson as a great factor, who in the same way could not avoid the Paik Seung-ho discount in minute 76′ with a great left-footed shot from outside the area.
With the victory sealed, Brazil managed to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup and will have to face Croatia, in one more step towards the long-awaited sixth crown in its history.
Meanwhile, Korea says goodbye with dignity despite this result, having passed a group stage in which they shared with Portugal, Uruguay and Ghana.
