FIFA World Cup: Brazil dominate South Korea to secure quarterfinal spot
During the round of 16 match between Brazil and South Korea at the Qatar World Cup, Brazil's forward Richarlison attempts a shot.
Brazil has successfully defeated South Korea 4-1 in the round of 16 to advance to the quarterfinals of the Qatar FIFA World Cup.
Brazil dominated the first half of the match this morning at Stadium 974 - Ras Abu Aboud in Doha.
Vinicius Jr.'s quick-response goal in the seventh minute gave the game its first score when Raphinha's low cross found the wide-open Real Madrid winger, who calmly curled the ball across goal to score.
Shortly after Richarlison's questionably-awarded foul for slight touch with a Japan defender's leg, Neymar successfully converted a penalty to make it two.
In classic Brazilian style, Richarlison scored the third goal of the game by juggling the ball on his head, passing it quickly to Thiago Silva, gliding into the box, and slotting it past the goalkeeper.
A counterattack led to the fourth goal seven minutes later, when Vinicius Jr. found Lucas Pacqueta and floated a creative cross into the box for Pacqueta to volley home.
Brazil appeared to play with less vigour in the second forty-five minutes after going into halftime with a four-goal advantage, although having numerous opportunities to extend their lead.
With a superb half-volley late in the second half, recent substitute Paik Seung-Ho gave South Korea the lead.
