Brazil set a World Cup record for nearly a century and easily eliminated South Korea
South Korea had performed a miracle in the group stage, they defeated their strong rival Portugal 2-1 and advanced to the top 16 by relying on the goal difference from Uruguay. However, in the round of 16, they met Brazil, which has won the championship five times and is very popular this year. The two teams have played against each other seven times in the past, and South Korea suffered six losses. History is always strikingly similar. In the first half of the game, Brazil scored 4 goals in 30 minutes, setting the tone for the game early, and finally let South Korea swallow the biggest defeat in 12 years with 4-1.
Looking back on this game, one of the highlights is the return of Brazilian star striker Neymar, who has made outstanding performances in this game. In the 7th minute of the game, Brazil relied on Vinicius Jr to score the first point; in the 12th minute, Neymar scored 12 yards steadily and scored the team’s second point; then in the 29th and 35th minutes, Richarlison de Andrade then Lucas Paqueta kicked the ball into the net to give Brazil a four-point lead in the first half.
South Korea finally had substitute Paik Seung-Ho to score a goal in the 75th minute of the second half, saving the team from a scoreless situation. Brazil also set a record for the first time in the 92-year history of the World Cup, becoming the first team in history to have all 26 players play in a single tournament.
