Brazil jumped all over South Korea to take a 4-0 lead in the first half.

In the 8th minute, it was Vinicius, Jr. who opened the scoring for Brazil. A cross in the box ended up at his feet and the Real Madrid man cooly deposited it in the right corner of the goal.

Shortly thereafter, in the 13th minute, Brazil was awarded a penalty after a foul in the box. Brazilian superstar Neymar, who sat out of the last two games of the group stage due to injury, stepped up to the spot and converted to give the Seleção a 2-0 lead. 

The goal was Neymar’s 76th for his country. It pulls him within one of Pele’s all-time scoring record for Brazil’s national team. 

Later in the half, striker Richarlison got in on the scoring. In the 29th minute, the Tottenham Hotspur forward played a give-and-go and made a darting run into the box. He received the return pass and slipped the ball past South Korean goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu.

Then, in the 37th minute, Lucas Paqueta made it 4-0. Arriving late in the box, Paqueta took a lofted pass from Vinicius, Jr. on the volley and found the back of the goal.

If the result holds, Brazil will face Croatia on Friday in the quarterfinals. Earlier today, Croatia defeated Japan on penalty kicks in their Round of 16 match.
