FIFA World Cup 2022: Brazil vs Serbia Highlights: Richarlison brace earns Brazil 2-0 win

0

Brazil
were
by
far
the
better
side
in
the
match
as
they
dominated
every
sector
of
the
pitch.
The
win
means
they
are
level
on
points
with
their
Group
G
rivals
Switzerland,
who
earlier
won
against
Cameroon.


As
it
Happened:

Brazil,
who
haven’t
lost
a
World
Cup
group
stage
match
this
century,
started
the
brighter
of
the
two
sides.
Vinicius
Junior
and
Richarlison
created
chances
while
Neymar’s
direct
corner
strike
was
just
kept
out
by
Vanja
Milinkovic-Savic
at
the
Serbia
goal.
Vinicius
Junior
and
Raphinha
had
chances
to
put
the
Canaries
ahead,
but
the
Serbian
keeper
came
to
the
aid
of
his
team
on
multiple
occasions.
Brazil
were
by
far
the
superior
team,
creating
numerous
chances
but
failed
to
break
the
deadlock
as
both
teams
entered
the
break
with
a
blank.

It
was
an
equally
blistering
start
from
Brazil
after
the
break
but
the
Serbian
defense
rebuffed
them
every
time.
Raphinha,
Richarlison
all
were
denied
scoring
opportunities
by
some
resilient
defending.
Alex
Sandro
came
close
to
giving
his
team
the
lead
but
was
denied
by
the
post.
The
elusive
goal
for
Brazil
came
in
the
62nd
minute
when
Richarlison
scored
from
the
rebound
of
Vinicius
Junior’s
shot,
initially
saved
by
Vanja.

It
was
Richarlison
again
12
minutes
later
to
extend
Brazil’s
lead
with
an
acrobatic
finish.
The
Spurs
striker
finished
it
off
with
a
magnificent
overhead
kick
past
Vanja
to
double
the
lead
for
the
Selecao.
Moments
later,
Casemiro’s
strike
rattled
the
bar
as
Brazil
came
agonisingly
close
to
a
third.

It
ended
at
2-0
for
Brazil
as
the
Selecao
made
a
winning
start
to
their
campaign.
