At first rough, then more pressing, the Brazilians outclassed the too cautious and limited Serbs.

But it took until the second half to see Neymar's partners ignite this game.

The PSG player and his partners indeed seemed contracted when approaching this match.

Between clumsiness and misunderstandings, the Brazilians came up against a real Serbian wall, aggressive and compact.

But on returning from the locker room, the Seleção set foot on the accelerator.

And was rewarded for his audacity.

Richarlison, hero of Brazil


Taking all the offensive risks, she managed to open with this cunning Richarlison, on the lookout for a shot from Vinicius badly repelled by the Serbian goalkeeper (1-0, 62nd).

The Tottenham striker then doubled the bet on a superb control + bicycle sequence which completely knocked out Serbia (2-0, 73rd).

An almost perfect evening for Brazil if Neymar had not injured his ankle.

Released before the end and in tears on the bench, he will undoubtedly have spoiled the pleasure of the Brazilian supporters in this successful start to the World Cup.
