Brazil beat South Korea with friendly two goals from Neymar

The Brazilian team defeated South Korea, 5-1 today (2) in a friendly World Cup preparation in Qatar. Goals at Seoul’s World Cup Stadium were scored by Richarlison, Neymar, twice from penalty kicks, Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus.

More than 67,000 fans attended the opening of the “Brazil Global Tour”, a series of friendly matches for the Asian national team, and praised Neymar from start to finish. A Real Madrid hero in the Champions League, Vini Jr was also honored when he entered the field in the 25th minute of the second half. In preparation for the Cup, Tite saw a fun attack and goalcorer and good performances from names like Alex Sandro and Fred, but he was probably disappointed with the performance of experienced Thiago Silva and Daniel Alves.

The next challenge is Brazil than on Monday (6th), against Japan. It’s best to set the alarm earlier: the ball will roll at 7:20 a.m. (Brazilian time). After this game, it’s September. South Korea also continues to prepare for the World Cup and will face Chile on the same day 6.

The best: Alex Sandro

The left-back has participated in almost every risky team game in today’s game. From Thiago Silva’s unauthorized goal to the start of Richarlison’s game, to suffering two penalties that ended with Neymar’s goals. Just on call with three sides and high competition, the Juventus athlete sent a message to Alex Telles and Guilherme Arana.

The right back didn’t respond in time to cover the spaces behind his back and suffered from South Korea’s speed. The defender, on the other hand, took a pivot worthy of an Asian goal school and still showed uncertainty in some moments of the game.

The Brazilian team started the run fast. Two minutes later, in the first attack, Thiago Silva took advantage of Alex Sandro’s cross and put it ahead. However, the linesman’s position is offside. Later, at six, Alex Sandro once again made a nice play on the left, crossed the ball and found Fred. Kicked by the midfielder, the ball was seen deflected to Richarlison and entered. It was Pombo’s fourth goal in the last three selection games.

After the scoring opening, Brazil slowed down a bit and started not giving Korea much risk. The hosts had difficulties in the making, but they got the tie one step above Thiago Silva. Ui Jo Hwang, a Bordeaux player, got inside the area and pivoted the defender more quickly. He kicked the cross, also defeated Weverton and drove 67,000 Koreans crazy.

After scoring the goal, Brazil tried to react immediately and soon got a penalty. Alex Sandro was fouled inside the venue, it was not seen by the referee, but he was warned by the VAR, who is a referee for his own country. Neymar went to the beat, dismissed the goalkeeper and scored his 72nd goal using the national team shirt. At the celebration, she danced with her companions and was applauded even by the local people, as it was the whole week. He also returned the applause to the standers.

Almost a replay of this game took place at the beginning of the second half: Young Gwon Kim knocked Alex Sandro to the spot and the referee handed down a penalty after consulting the video. Neymar converted again to add to the score.

Vini Jr. blew up the stadium at the entrance

The goal scorer who won Real Madrid’s Champions League title, Vini Jr exploded in the stadium when he went to the edge of the field to replace Richarlison, in the 25th minute of the second half. The emotion of the stances is similar to that seen in the appearances of Neymar and Son on the big screen. The player on the first move from left attempted a dribble that took the fan from the seat at the World Cup Stadium.

Jesus closed the defeat and stopped fasting

Brazil made the end of the game a tour, despite changing more than half of the team. And then Gabriel Jesus even left the fast that lasted for three years, since the end of the Copa América in 2019. There have been 19 games he has played without hitting the net with a yellow shirt. Manchester City’s good end was also shown in the selection.
