On Monday, World Cup favorites Brazil wreaked havoc on South Korea with four first-half goals on route to a resounding 4-1 victory in their round-of-16 match. This performance thrilled supporters and frightened possible opponents.

Raphinha’s low cross found Vinicius Jr in the seventh minute, and he deftly lofted the ball over the goalie and three defenders who were advancing.

Five minutes later, a Neymar penalty made the score 2-0, and Richarlison added a superb third after juggling and a razor-sharp combination with Marquinhos and Thiago Silva that had Brazil’s ecstatic fans dancing and neutrals worldwide sighing.

Lucas Paqueta scored the fourth goal after 36 minutes, and the five-time winners played the second half like an exhibition, with just the brilliant Korean goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu preventing additional goals as they prepared for Friday’s quarterfinal against Croatia.
