FIFA World Cup 2022™ update – Brazil blitz South Korea in World Cup last 16: Seleção too hot to handle
Issued on: Modified:
Samba kings Brazil are through to the World Cup Quarter finals after an absolutely stunning first-half display that saw them defeat South Korea 4-1. With Neymar’s return, the team had no trouble in showing their technical superiority. The World Cup also saw its first penalty shootout of the competition so far, with Croatia coming out on top over Japan. It was so close but so far for the Samurai Blue, who thought they had done enough after Daizen Maeda’s opener. But Ivan Perisic headed in an equaliser for Croatia and the match was finally decided from the penalty spot.
There is just one more day of last 16 matches to look forward to this Tuesday. Morocco, one of the only unbeaten teams remaining, will take on 2010 champions Spain. In the later game, Fernando Santos’s Portugal will have a tricky task on their hands as they face off against Murat Yakin’s Switzerland at the Lusail Stadium.
From Doha, FRANCE 24’s Sports Editor Simon Harding joins Jean-Emile Jammine and Karim Baldé in Paris to discuss all the action.
