World Cup 2022 - last 16: Brazil 4-1 S Korea

Brazil have delivered a threatening message to their World Cup rivals with a dazzling display of attacking brilliance to dismantle South Korea 4-1 and set up a quarter-final against Croatia.

Vinicius Junior set the tone with a composed finish from Raphinha's cross after seven minutes. Neymar then moved to within one of Pele’s all-time record goal-haul for his country with a confident penalty on 13 minutes.

Richarlison added another World Cup beauty to his spectacular volley against Serbia, finishing off a real work of art from inside the area. The Seleção went four up after 36 minutes. This time Lucas Paqueta volleyed home on a Vinicius Junior cross.

In the second period, Paik Seung-ho pulled one back for the Asians with a glorious 30-yard strike to add to the night's collection of special goals.

Brazil now look ahead to Friday’s quarter-final clash with 2018 runners-up Croatia.
