Brazil 2 – 0 Serbia: Richarlison shines as Samba Boys kick off World Cup campaign with a flying start

Brazil kicked off their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign with a 2 – 0 victory over Serbia on Thursday night.

Richarlison was the star on the night as his two goals, both in the second half, sealed all three points and gives Brazil a flying start.

The star-studded Samba Boys struggled to find a breakthrough in the first half as they were well-contained by Serbia defence.

But two minutes after the hour mark, Richarlison’s strike from inside the 18-yard box beat goalkeeper Savic.

11 minutes later, Richarlison took advantage of a Vinicius Junior assist to complete his brace and put Brazil comfortably on top of the table.

SOME ANALYSIS

HALF TIME

First half ended goalless with Serbia holding their own well against the star studded Brazilian team.

Will things change in the second half? Time will tell.

TOUGH

Neymar not finding things easy as Serbia gives him close marking.

Side attraction for Brazil all the way.

30′ NO GOAL YET

Brazil trying to find a breakthrough but Serbia is giving them a run for their money.

KICK-OFF

Let the game begin

TEAM NEWS

Serbia’s Dusan Vlahovic is certainly capable of causing that Brazilian defence problems.

Neymar has 75 goals for Brazil, just two away now from equalling Pele’s all-time goalscoring record.

It’s about to go down

Serbia lineup also looks dangerous.

Brazil starting XI looks very dangerous.
