Brazil are in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar after an easy 4-1 (4-0) win over South Korea.

The goals for the five-time world champion were scored by Vinícius Júnior (7th minute), Neymar (13th), Richarlison (29th) and Lucas Paquetá (36th).

Paik Seung-ho scored for Korea (76th).

Brazil meets Croatia in the quarterfinals, who beat Japan.

It was a show of power from the Brazilians from the start, with the recently injured Neymar returning to the starting XI.

The South Americans took the lead with their first try.

Raphinha broke through on the right, bringing the ball low and sharp inside.

Neymar missed, Vinícius Júnior was there (7th).

Brazil continued to push forward with plenty of joy, Kim Young-gwon being late in the penalty area against Richarlison.

Neymar converted the penalty due (13th).

The game was decided before it really got started.

The Brazilians then scored their best goal in the 29th minute: Richarlison juggled the ball several times with his head, then played the moved-up central defender Marquinhos.

He put across to his fellow defender Thiago Silva, who passed directly to Richarlison, who had run in.

The attacker completed easily from five meters (29th).

Despite the hopeless deficit, the Koreans also played forward - and were punished immediately.

With Korea moving up a little, the Brazilians countered via Neymar and Vinícius Júnior, who lobbed the ball down Paquetá's path.

The attacker volleyed the ball and hit the left corner (36').

Brazil changes the keeper

The Koreans had their best opportunity early in the second half.

Superstar Son Heung-min appeared in the penalty area after a long ball.

When trying to flick the ball into the goal, keeper Alisson Becker got a hand and steered the ball wide (47').

The Brazilians took it much easier in the second half.

Hwang Hee-chan had a great opportunity, but shot his team-mate in the penalty area (68').

Former Darmstadt player Paik Seung-ho scored the consolation goal from long range (76').

In the final phase, Brazil's coach Tite happily made changes and, among other things, brought in the third keeper Wéverton.

Tite has already used all 26 players in the squad.
