72′ – Bremer on the field
Double substitution for Tite: Bremer for Danilo, the two Juventus players, and Martinelli for Vinicius. Brazil is three behind.
68′ – Alisson is a block
In front, Brazil is deadly, but thanks to Alisson behind, author of another phenomenal open hand save on Hwang H..
63′ – Raphinha again! Enter Dani Alves
Kim Seung-Gyu is decisive again on Raphinha, rejecting the Brazilian’s shot. First substitution for Tite: Dani Alves in for Militao (warned).
55′ – Opportunity for Raphinha
Raphinha goes on his own, double feints in the area and low shot on the long post, Kim Seung-Gyu dives into it.
47′ – Miraculous Alisson on Son!
Son surprises Marquinhos with speed after a long ball and goes with his right foot, Alisson is miraculous in his exit and manages to deflect for a corner.
46′ – THE SECOND HALF BEGINS
It starts again without changes and with Brazil ahead 4-0.
45’+5′ – Paquetá and Richarlison come close to making it 5-0. End of first half
Another beautiful action from Brazil in the 46th minute, which ended with a really refined Paquetá from outside the ball, which however hits the goalkeeper. Richarlison also tries shortly after on the break, but the shot is saved by Kim Seung-Gyu with his foot. The first half ends.
36′ – POKER BRAZIL, PAQUETÁ ALSO SCORES!
It’s an overwhelming Brazil: in the restart Vinicius scoops for the arrival of Paquetá, who first volleys by guessing the winning diagonal.
33′ – Again Alisson on Hwang H.
Nice action on the backline by Hwang H. who jumps Militao and shoots, but Alisson closes the target.
What a goal Richarlison scored! First a sleight of hand with which he dribbles three times like in the circus, then puts down and exchanges with Casemiro, one-two to appear alone in front of the goalkeeper, beaten with the plate. The party also involves Tite dancing with the team.
17′ – Great save by Alisson
South Korea’s reaction, Hwang H. unloads a great shot from distance but Alisson flies and deflects for a corner: super save.
13′ – DOUBLE BY NEYMAR ON PENALTY!
Just thirteen minutes and Brazil is already 2-0 up. Richarlison gets the penalty and Neymar transforms it with extraordinary coldness. For O Ney it is the second goal in this World Cup (the first against Tunisia) and the 76th with the Seleçao, minus one from Pelé.
7′ – GOAL BY VINICIUS!
At the first lunge Brazil took the lead: dribbling by Raphinha on the right and a low cross, Neymar didn’t get there but Vinicius was at the far post, who controlled and placed under the crossbar.
1′ – BRAZIL-SOUTH KOREA BEGINS
National anthems and off we go, Korea plays the first ball. Tite recovers Neymar and launches him as a starter in the green-gold attack, on the other side instead leads the defense Kim of Napoli.
I’m looking for the first goal
In the 91st minute of the last game, Son participated in a goal for the first time in this World Cup with South Korea, providing the assist for Hwang for the goal that earned them qualification for the round of 16. Son is still looking for his first goal in this World Cup.
The curious fact about Rodrygo
Brazil’s Rodrygo has had three opponents booked in this World Cup, including two in their last match against Cameroon – more than any other player yet in the competition, despite having played just 114 of the 270 minutes available.
The official formations
BRAZIL (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Danilo; Paquetá, Casemiro; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius; Richardson. CT: Tite.
SOUTH KOREA (4-2-3-1): Kim Seung-Gyu; Kim Moon-Hwan, Kim Min-Jae, Kim Young-Gwon, Kim Jin-Su; Hwang In-Beom, Jung; Hwang He-Chaan, Lee, H. Son; Cho S. CT: Paulo Bento.
Curiosity about Brazil-South Korea
This will be the eighth meeting between Brazil and South Korea, the first in an official match between the sides. Brazil have won six of their previous seven games (L1), including the last 5-1 last June.
South Korea has never beaten a South American national team at the World Cup, drawing twice and losing four.
This will be South Korea’s first knockout match at a World Cup since 2010, when they were eliminated by Uruguay in the round of 16 (1-2). Previously, they won just one of their five matches immediately after the group stage in the competition (D1 L3), in 2002 against Italy.
Brazil have progressed to the last 16 on all of the last seven occasions they have contested them at the World Cup, only failing to win in the 90 minutes and advancing only after a 2014 shoot-out against Chile. Last time they were eliminated to this point in the tournament dates back to the 1990 against Argentina.
