Bra V Kor - 1st Half - Itv.mp4.mp4
WHAT HAPPENED? Brazil were at their irresistible best in the first half of their last-16 clash against South Korea at World Cup 2022. Tite's side scored four times without reply as Vinicius Junior, Neymar, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta all netted. Brazil celebrated their goals by dancing, even including manager Tite at 2-0, which did not go down well with the notoriously grumpy television pundit.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Keane may not have enjoyed Brazil's celebrations but he can't fail to have been impressed by the team's first-half performance. The Selecao produced the sort of free-flowing, exciting attacking football they are known all over the world for and will have reinforced their status as tournament favourites with this showing.
It was a career day for Ramos in the round of 16 victory over the Swiss. In the first half he took over the game to make a statement for the Portuguese, scoring a great goal that opened the scoreboard. Then Pepe put things 2-0, and they never looked back.
But the margin continued growing in the second half with Ramos proving Santos right. The Benfica striker scored again to leave things 3-0, although he also had the fifth goal of his team that gave him a hat-trick. The match was so under control that Ronaldo got in only with 20 minutes to go. Portugal will now play vs Morocco in the quarterfinals of Qatar 2022.
90+1, Hwang continues to to be a nuisance, in the best possible way, racing in between defenders and lashing a shot into the side netting. It's been a brilliant effort from the South Korean players in the second half, a polar opposite from the first.
Brazil raced into a 4-0 lead over South Korea before halftime with goals from Vinicius Jr., Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta plus a Neymar penalty. The match ended 4-1 after substitute Paik Seung-ho got a consolation goal for the Asian side. 041b061a72
