Brazil gets off to a perfect start


Brazil starts perfectly its world after the victory obtained against Serbia. They were the last to enter this World Cup. We had to play well to avoid the Serbian trap. Indeed, the Eastern European players offered a nice resistance to the Brazilian attacks. But it was without counting on the serious and applied Brazilians in the game, like Neymar.


However, the victory was long in coming. Indeed, although dominant in the game, the Brazilians fell on a team of Serbia willing and committed in the duels. The first period was placed under the sign of observation, even if the Brazilians dominated the possession of the ball. However, the numerous yellow and green attempts were stopped by an excellent Vanja Milinkovic. The Serbian goalkeeper allowed his teammates to delay the deadline four times (14′, 22′, 27′, 46′), before being saved by his post on a shot from Alex Sandro in the 60th minute.


It was not until the second half that Tite’s men were able to put their actions into practice. In the 61st minute, Neymar projected and passed to Vinicius who attempted a curling shot into the box. His attempt is countered by After dribbles of Neymar, Vinicius tries his chance of the right in the surface. His shot is countered by Milinkovic-Savić and goes straight back to Richarlison’s feet. The latter only has to conclude in the empty goal. 1-0 for Brazil.

Barely 10 minutes later, the same Richarlison did it again and got a double! After a good work of Rodrygo on the left side, the Real Madrid winger sends a good outside foot towards the penalty point. The ball is slightly countered by a Serbian defender and presents himself perfectly in front of Richarlison. Inspired, the Brazilian striker controlled, pivoted and sent a dazzling volley into the net. He brings the score to 2-0 in favor of the Brazilian on a goal of great class! Ten minutes later, the Real Madrid winger crossed with an outside foot to Richarlison. At the end of the game, several Brazilian attempts will be diverted by the Serbian keeper, author of a very good performance despite the defeat.


What will be remembered is the concern around the Brazilian No. 10: Neymar. After a strong tackle by a Serbian defender on a Brazilian attack, the Brazilian player had collapsed holding his ankle. He could be seen limping on his way up and struggling to get back into the game. He was replaced by Antony 10 minutes before the end. Tite’s men now have 4 days to heal their offensive leader, before they face Switzerland, this Monday, November 28 at 5pm.
