Serbia vs. Brazil Highlights: Qatar World Cup 2022

At Lusail Stadium on Friday, Brazil defeated Siberia 2-0 to begin their FIFA World Cup 2022 campaign. For the five-time champions in their inaugural group G game, Richarlison scored both goals.

Richarlison assisted Brazil in a 2-0 victory over Serbia on Thursday at the World Cup. He scored twice, the second of which was an impressive acrobatic kick. The striker lifted the ball into the air with one touch in the 73rd minute, twirled around, and rose off the ground before kicking it with his right foot into the goal.

Prior to Richarlison’s close-range goal in the 62nd minute, Brazil had a difficult time breaking through the Serbian defense. Neymar had initiated the move. Both goals were assisted by Vincius Jnior. Neymar, who is vying for Brazil’s first major championship, has scored 75 goals for the national team, two fewer than Pelé’s record.

Serbia’s performance gives them a reason for hope.

Richarlison was the star of the night, but Serbia should be praised for their effort. They successfully restrained Brazil for an hour, and their press was impressive. Although they posed little of an attacking threat, their focus and perseverance were admirable. Brazil had to use some sort of wizardry to end the game.

Brazil discovered a new R9.

The tournament’s most memorable moment thus far may have been that second goal. The kind of objective that makes you gasp. The kind of objective that causes you to tweet nonsense. The sort of objective that will be discussed for a long time.

Brazil had trouble entertaining tonight when playing a plodding Serbia team. However, they discovered their showman in Richarlison.

Alisson, Danilo, Thiago Silva (at center), Marquinhos, Alex Sandro, Neymar, Lucas Paqueta, Vinicius Jr., Raphinha, and Richarlison are all Brazilian players. Serbian players include Aleksandar Mitrovic, Milos Veljkovic, Filip Mladenovic, Strahinja Pavlovic, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Nikola Milenkovic, Andrija Zivkovic, Nemanja Gudelj, and Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.
