Brazil 4-1 South Korea LIVE! World Cup 2022 result, match stream, latest reaction and updates today

Brazil vs South Korea – LIVE!

World Cup favourites Brazil produced a performance to delight fans and terrify potential opponents as they ripped through South Korea with four first-half goals to secure a hugely impressive 4-1 victory in their last 16 clash.

They were ahead after seven minutes when Raphinha’s low cross reached Vinicius Jr and he expertly lifted the ball above the charging goalkeeper and three defenders. Five minutes later it was 2-0 with a Neymar penalty and Richarlison added a brilliant third after a spell of juggling then a razor combination with Marquinhos and Thiago Silva that had Brazil’s delirious fans dancing and neutrals everywhere purring.

Lucas Paqueta volleyed in the fourth after 36 minutes and the five-times champions played the second half as an exhibition, denied more goals only by impressive Korean goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu, as they turned their attention to Friday’s quarter-final meeting with Croatia. Korea worked tirelessly and bravely to try to limit the damage and were rewarded for their own attacking efforts when Paik Seung-ho smashed in a brilliant long-range shot.

Brazil 4 - 1 Korea Republic

Thanks for following!

22:02 , Matt Verri

For 45 minutes, this felt less like a World Cup knockout match and more like an exhibition from Brazil, who delivered a first-half display of individual and collective brilliance which should genuinely strike fear into the other favourites in Qatar.

The five-time winners were expected to comfortably beat South Korea but it was not so much a 4-1 win but the manner, or more specifically the swagger, of their performance which was so ominous for Croatia, who they meet in Friday’s quarter-final, and their other rivals.

Speaking from hospital on the eve of the game, Pele had said he wanted to “inspire” his successors in the famous yellow jersey and Tite’s players could scarcely have honoured him more appropriately in a first-half brimming with style and skill.

What an assist too...

21:39 , Matt Verri

Brazil killed this game with a rampant performance in the first-half, where they were pretty much unstoppable. Forward line has so much talent. Will take some stopping.

Weverton completes the set!

Richarlison 8

The Tottenham striker has been in excellent form at this World Cup and continued tonight. Scored a lovely goal and looked a threat all game. Won the penalty which Neymar scored.

Vinicius Junior 9 | Star player

Without doubt one of the best wingers in the world. Showed so much composure for his goal and setup Paqueta’s with a lovely dinked cross.

Brilliant strike...

21:01 , Matt Verri

FT: Brazil 4-1 South Korea

20:55 , Matt Verri

Easy as you like for Brazil, job done in a devastating opening 36 minutes.

South Korea improved after the break and got their consolation, but the game was long since up.

Brazil cruise into the quarter-finals.

20:51 , Matt Verri

90+1 mins: Four minutes added on.

Think we’re pretty safe to say Brazil will be facing Croatia in the quarter-finals.

20:49 , Matt Verri

89 mins: That would really have capped it!

Martinelli stands a ball up to the back post, Alves flings himself at it and connects well with the acrobatic effort. It’s blocked though.

Bremer then sees his header tipped over from the corner, somehow Brazil not awarded another one.

20:46 , Matt Verri

86 mins: South Korea make an absolute mess of playing out from the back, very bold to still be doing that.

Rodrygo and Richarlison pounce, they should really take full advantage but Rodrygo is closed down as he takes too long in the box.

20:43 , Matt Verri

83 mins: South Korea playing some really nice football, getting in down the sides.

Low cross fired into the six-yard box, flies through everyone though and away to safety.

20:40 , Matt Verri

80 mins: Bit shaky all of a sudden from Brazil, Cho in behind this time and he’s denied by Alisson who has been strangely busy tonight.

Offside flag goes up though, that save was all for nothing.

And now Alisson is coming off! Weverton gets his chance at the World Cup. Neymar meanwhile is off for Rodrygo.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

20:38 , Matt Verri

It was always going to take something special to beat Alisson. What a hit that was.

20:38 , Matt Verri

78 mins: South Korea have probably deserved that, shown plenty of attacking ambition all match even if it has left them exposed at the back.

Now, 12 minutes to find three more. Easy work.

GOAL! Brazil 4-1 South Korea | Seung-Ho Paik 76'

20:37 , Matt Verri

Free-kick for South Korea, chance to put a decent ball into the box.

Headed out, comes to Paik 20 yards out and he rifles it into the corner past Alisson. That’s a brilliant strike, maybe took a slight deflection on its way.

20:33 , Matt Verri

73 mins: Martinelli and Bremer on, Vinicius and Danilo the two to make way.

Interesting that Neymar hasn’t been brought off and wrapped up, considering his injury problems.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

20:30 , Matt Verri

Brazil are 4-0 up here but Alisson has also made four very good saves. He hasn’t had much to do, but he’s dealt very well with any danger.

20:28 , Matt Verri

68 mins: A combination of South Korea tightening up a bit and Brazil easing off has meant this match has slowed right down.

It’s South Korea seeing plenty of the ball now, and that’s a decent cross... chaos in the Brazil box!

Shots flying in, Alisson with another brilliant save. Son then has a couple of efforts blocked by Marquinhos on the floor.

20:25 , Matt Verri

65 mins: Silva looks to skip out of defence with the ball, gets a caught on the ankle as he does so.

Alves is on for Brazil, for the final 25 minutes or so. Militao the man to make way.

20:22 , Matt Verri

62 mins: Pace has slowed down a fair bit now, but here come Brazil again as Neymar leads the charge.

Raphinha in once again, on his right foot this time and he’s denied from a tight angle. 4-0 is really flattering South Korea.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

20:20 , Matt Verri

A group of Brazil fans behind the goal just unfurled a banner for Pele and chanted his name. The banner read: Get well soon Pele.

20:17 , Matt Verri

57 mins: Free-kick Brazil, got to be almost 30 yards out. Now’s as good a time as any to try something optimistic. Neymar looks to be eyeing it up.

It’s Raphinha in fact, flicks off the wall and behind for a corner.

20:14 , Matt Verri

54 mins: Raphinha and Paqueta have been absolutely sublime on the right.

They combine again, the Barcelona man cutting inside onto that left foot after a brilliant chop. Keeper just about palms it away, Vinicius fires wide seconds later.

20:10 , Matt Verri

50 mins: Casemiro with a lovely ball out wide, Raphinha running onto it.

Looks to play the ball into the box, blocked and bounces back off him, rolling behind for a goal-kick.

20:07 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Raphinha in about six seconds after the restart, his shot is blocked and dribbles through to the goalkeeper.

And now Son is in at the other end... brilliant save! Son has to score, clean through but Alisson tips it behind. Sensational.

Back underway

20:05 , Matt Verri

Roy Keane has been complaining about the Brazilian dancing after each one of their goals - “It’s like watching Strictly.”

We’re back underway - more dancing very much on the cards.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

19:58 , Matt Verri

My word. This half-time entertainment. Not sure if I am at Butlins or the World Cup.

Pick of the bunch

19:57 , Matt Verri

Dan Kilpatrick at Stadium 974

19:54 , Matt Verri

Easily the most entertaining 45 minutes of football at this World Cup bar none.

This is Brazil having fun, fulfilling the country’s great traditions as entertainers and it’s genuinely been a joy to watch.

HT: Brazil 4-0 South Korea

19:51 , Matt Verri

Dear me, that was an absolute battering.

Sensational from Brazil, as dominant a 45 minutes as you’ll see. Vinicius, Neymar, Richarlison and Paqueta with the goals.

South Korea might want to change tactics, or this will be double figures.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

19:49 , Matt Verri

This could, and maybe, should be six or seven already. Brazil look unstoppable. We’d forgotten about them over the weekend with all the excitement over Messi and Mbappe, they’ve reminded us now.

19:49 , Matt Verri

45+4 mins: How is it not 5-0? In fact, it should be about 8-0.

South Korea have decided they don’t actually need to defend, so Richarlison has the freedom of the right wing.

Drives all the way into the box, just the goalkeeper to beat but the effort is saved.

19:47 , Matt Verri

45+2 mins: Vinicius bends a lovely cross into the six-yard box, Raphinha inches away from having a tap-in. Should have gone with his head, instead decided to try and get his leg up five feet off the ground.

South Korea are praying, PRAYING that the half-time whistle comes soon.

19:46 , Matt Verri

45+1 mins: Five minutes added on.

Another stunning Brazil move, Raphinha flicks it through to Paqueta who tries to be far too clever with the finish and just scoops it out to the goalkeeper.

Had to blast that with his right foot, would probably have been 5-0.

19:44 , Matt Verri

44 mins: And that’s what Raphinha gets for being nice. It’s a cruel world. Skips past Jung and gets a shoulder to the face, pretty cynical from the South Korea midfielder and he earns a yellow card.

He’ll miss the quarter-finals, FIFA tell us. I wouldn’t worry about that.

19:42 , Matt Verri

42 mins: Son down, South Korea point at him in the hope that Brazil will take mercy and halt their attack. Raphinha does just that - bit easier to be nice when you’re 4-0 up.

Looks like Son took a blow to the ribs, he’s back up now though and fine to continue.

19:40 , Matt Verri

40 mins: South Korea are still pressing with about six players up the pitch. Leaving themselves four-on-four at the back, which is... brave. That’s one word anyway.

It is not going to finish 4-0 if the pattern of play stays like this.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stadium 974

19:38 , Matt Verri

Another outrageous goal and another London goalscorer. This is an absolutely exhibition from Brazil and it’s surely no exaggeration to say this will be striking fear into every other contender in Qatar.

GOAL! Brazil 4-0 South Korea | Lucas Paqueta 36'

19:37 , Matt Verri


This is a ridiculous performance. Comes down the left this time, Vinicius flicking the ball into the box.

Paqueta runs onto it and volleys into the bottom corner. Too easy.

19:34 , Matt Verri

34 mins: Paqueta plays it out wide to Raphinha, back to Paqueta.

He lays it off to Casemiro, who whips the effort from distance wide. Brazil are on another level to South Korea.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

19:32 , Matt Verri

A bit like when Argentina are in town, this stadium is dominated by South American fans. There is a tiny pocket of Korea fans behind one goal and, credit to them, they’ve not stopped singing despite going three down.

19:31 , Matt Verri

31 mins: Vinicius looks to get in on the act, can’t keep it on target.

Tite got involved with the dancing after that goal - safe to say Brazil are having a pretty enjoyable evening.

GOAL! Brazil 3-0 South Korea | Richarlison 29'

19:29 , Matt Verri


That is genuinely outrageous. Casemiro lifts the ball into the box, Richarlison juggles it on his head a few times just for fun.

They then bring it down, lovely one-touch passing cuts South Korea open and Richarlison finishes it off.

19:25 , Matt Verri

25 mins: Corner for South Korea, good work down the left from Jin-Su and the cross is charged down.

Son fires it in at the near post, Richarlison up well to head it out. Shot comes back in from Hwang who has decided he is going for goal whenever he can even vaguely see Alisson. Comfortable save this time.

19:23 , Matt Verri

23 mins: South Korea have actually looked decent since that second goal, getting plenty of bodies forward.

Ball sent long this time, Son nudges Paqueta in the air and that will be a free-kick, for all the Tottenham man complains.

One way to take a penalty...

19:22 , Matt Verri

19:20 , Matt Verri

20 mins: South Korea having a decent spell of possession, working their way into the game. That would be a positive if they did not already find themselves 2-0 down.

Here comes another break, Hwang looks to cut inside onto that right foot again but Casemiro reads it this time and wins the ball back.

19:17 , Matt Verri

17 mins: What a strike! Stunning effort from Hwang, 25 yards out and it’s destined for the top corner until Alisson at full stretch tips it over the bar.

Another effort comes in from the corner, blazed over this time. Some encouragement for South Korea.

19:16 , Matt Verri

16 mins: South Korea have been blown away, feel like this match is already over.

Certainly not over in terms of entertainment though, Brazil look like they are in the mood to run riot tonight.

Dan Kilpatrick at Stadium 974

19:14 , Matt Verri

Brazil are enjoying themselves and this is already looking set to be an exhibition from Tite’s side.

The way Neymar rolled home the spot kick underlines the confidence and swagger of his Brazilian side.

GOAL! Brazil 2-0 South Korea | Neymar 13'

19:12 , Matt Verri


Neymar takes an age to start his run up, and with the most nonchalant finish ever he rolls it into the bottom corner. Outrageously cool.


19:11 , Matt Verri

This is falling apart for South Korea at a rapid rate.

Jung kicks through Richarlison, as he looked to clear the ball up the pitch. Brazil forward got there first and poked it away.

Not a huge amount of contact really, but just about enough.

19:10 , Matt Verri

10 mins: Cho clatters into Neymar, won’t be the first time he’s fouled tonight. Up come the centre-backs, good position for this free-kick.

Clever routine, Paqueta looks to slide Vinicius in but the door is slammed shut.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

19:08 , Matt Verri

That goal was all about Raphinha. He showed fantastic goal to make space on the right. This could be a long night for Korea. Brazil have started so fast.

GOAL! Brazil 1-0 South Korea | Vinicius Jr 7'

19:07 , Matt Verri


That’s the perfect start. Raphinha in down the right, cut back goes through everyone and finds Vinicius. Takes a touch and then curls it into the far corner. Wonderful finish.

19:04 , Matt Verri

4 mins: Casemiro floats a pass out to Raphinha, who tries to slid in Paqueta but too much on that.

So much width for Brazil, with Raphinha and Vinicius staying really wide as ever. Neymar... doing whatever he wants.

19:02 , Matt Verri

2 mins: Looks like a pretty clear 4-4-2 for South Korea, Son right up there alongside Cho.

Already Brazil have gone long a couple of times, looking to exploit any space in behind the defence. Yet to come off.


19:00 , Matt Verri

Up and running, the tournament favourites looking to become the latest side into the quarter-finals.

18:57 , Matt Verri

Brazil’s anthem is like an event in itself. Must be about five times the length of God Save The King.

South Korea’s a bit more of a muted affair, mainly because they don’t have thousands of Brazilians giving it full beans.

Time to get this match underway!

Here we go...

18:53 , Matt Verri

Players are out onto the pitch, Neymar hanging back as ever.

So many stars in this Brazil side, they’re certainly not as reliant on him as they have been in the past.

Sure they wouldn’t mind him taking charge and dragging them to glory in Qatar though...

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

18:49 , Matt Verri

I would say the atmosphere is building but you cannot tell as the mother of all light shows and DJ sets is going on. The one time the noise was cut through was the huge cheer for Neymar’s name being read out.

The Richarlison/Son derby...

18:47 , Matt Verri

Underdogs yet to deliver

18:41 , Matt Verri

For all the shocks we’ve had in this tournament so far, we’re still waiting for a first upset of the knockout stage.

England vs France and Netherlands vs Argentina the two blockbuster quarter-finals to come. With Croatia also through, it’s not been a great round for the underdogs.

The return of Neymar has certainly not helped South Korea’s cause.

Last time they met...

18:35 , Matt Verri

Brazil and South Korea met in a friendly earlier this year, which turned into a bit of a rout.

It ended up 5-1 to Brazil, with Richarlison, Coutinho and Jesus all scoring once, along with a Neymar brace in a comfortable win.

Doubt South Korea will be bringing that up too much in their pre-match team talk tonight...

History on Brazil’s side

18:27 , Matt Verri

USA, Chile, Belgium, Ghana, Chile, Colombia, Mexico.

Brazil have won their last seven last-16 matches at the World Cup, their only defeat ever at this stage coming in 1990 against Argentina.

Not too shabby a record.

Simon Collings at Stadium 974

18:18 , Matt Verri

Croatia waiting for the winners

18:11 , Matt Verri

Whoever comes out on top tonight will face Croatia in the quarter-finals.

There will likely be some tired legs, after they were taken all the way to penalties by Japan. The 2018 runners-up came out on top 3-1 in the shootout.

Not long until we find out if it’s Brazil or South Korea up against Luka Modric and Co. in the last-eight.

Neymar fit for Brazil

18:04 , Matt Verri

Neymar starts for Brazil!

Big news for them, and a huge boost. Danilo and Militao at full-back, far from first-choice. Those look the weakest point in an otherwise very strong lineup.

Vinicius, Richarlison, Silva... the stars all return.

Pele NOT receiving end-of-life care in hospital, family insist

17:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

The family of Pele have insisted that the football icon is not receiving end-of-life care.

Reports over the weekend claimed that the Brazil legend, 82, was receiving palliative care on a ward at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo having stopped responding to chemotherapy treatment for colon cancer, with an outpouring of tributes from around the world.

However, daughter Flavia Nascimento has now dismissed those claims, insisting they are not accurate.

“It’s pretty unfair people saying that he is in terminal condition, that he is under palliative care. Believe us: that’s not it,” she told Brazilian station Globo TV.

Sister Kely added that Pele was being treated for a respiratory infection after contracting Covid-19 three weeks ago and would return home once his condition improved.

“He is sick, he is old, but at the moment he is being treated for a respiratory infection and when he gets better he will be back home,” she said. “He is not saying goodbye in a hospital right now”.

Pele returned to hospital last week amid concerning reports that he was suffering from major swelling all over his body and decompensated heart failure.

However, his family and Pele’s official social media accounts stated that he was merely there on a monthly visit to have his cancer treatment re-evaluated and his medication regulated, with no new “emergency or dire prediction”.

The hospital later confirmed that he was being treated for a respiratory infection.

Pele’s health has been in decline for a number of years and last September he was in and out of intensive care after having surgery to remove a tumour from his colon.

He also suffered from a urinary infection earlier this year and was hospitalised with the same issue back in 2014. Pele has been unable to walk unaided for many years due to hip problems.

Regarded by many as the greatest footballer who ever lived, Pele was among the biggest 20th century sporting icons and remains the only player ever to have won three separate World Cups, with Brazil in 1958, 1962 and 1970.

He spent almost his entire club career with Brazilian giants Santos, netting 618 goals in 638 league appearances before finishing with a memorable stint in the United States with New York Cosmos.

Pele holds a world record for his astonishing career figures of 1,279 goals in 1,363 games including friendlies and is still Brazil’s all-time leading scorer, having notched 77 times in 92 caps between 1957-71 - two more than current Selecao talisman Neymar.

Good news for Brazil and South Korea

17:08 , Jonathan Gorrie

Croatia and Japan playing extra-time in their clash will surely have an impact on the winners’ fitness ahead of their meeting with either Brazil and South Korea.

Brazil good at this stage

16:59 , Jonathan Gorrie

Not since 1990 have the Selecao been knocked out at this stage of the competition.

South Korea, meanwhile, are back in the 16 for the first time since losing to Uruguay in 2010.

Brazil boss Tite slams ‘liars and haters’ over Gabriel Jesus injury ‘fake news’

16:51 , Jonathan Gorrie

Brazil boss Tite says it is “fake news” that he called up an injured Gabriel Jesus to the World Cup.

Arsenal striker Jesus has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament in Qatar after coming off injured during Brazil’s defeat to Cameroon on Friday.

The striker has injured his knee and he is currently undergoing further tests to learn the full extent of the problem amid reports he faces three months out.

It was reported that Jesus was complaining of knee pain before the game - and had been for several weeks.

But when that was put to Tite on Sunday afternoon, he said: “Thank you very much for this question because I can’t repeat things out there that are lies.

“These are evil lies, from those who want to do bad things to others. Not at any time here in the national team did we pay the price for victory with the health of an athlete.

“So this liar who is out there…the haters, that’s what they call them, that’s what they call them, right? They keep spreading it around, so they give me the opportunity to talk. Stop spreading fake news and do something else.

“Arsenal has a great medical department. We have a great medical department. We have a personal responsibility. We have personal ethics. It would never happen like this.”

Heung-min Son ends World Cup malaise with clutch moment in shock win

16:45 , Jonathan Gorrie

Heung-min Son has had a quiet World Cup. In truth, the Tottenham forward is lucky to even be here, having undergone surgery on a fractured eye socket only last month.

Playing masked, he has for the most part been only a mild imitation of the electrifying force known to regular watchers of the Premier League.

But as the fourth official’s board raised for six added minutes here, and a Portugal corner was cleared into open grass, he set off as few others can.

Racing alone towards the Portuguese box he paused, hesitant it seemed, smart it turned out, waiting for the run of substitute Hwang Hee-chan who swept home to send South Korea into dreamland and the round of 16.

Gabriel Jesus back at Arsenal to see knee specialist after World Cup withdrawal

16:41 , Jonathan Gorrie

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus is in London to see a knee specialist after being forced to withdraw from Brazil’s World Cup squad.

Jesus injured his knee during Brazil’s 1-0 defeat to Cameroon last Friday and, after being assessed by national team staff over the weekend, was ruled out for the rest of the tournament.

The full extent of the injury is uncertain and as a result Jesus flew back to London from Qatar yesterday with his wife and child to see a specialist in London.

Jesus being out for an extended period of time would be a hammer blow for Arsenal and could force them to act in the transfer market.

Brazil team news: Neymar available again

16:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

Tite made nine changes to his starting XI for the Cameroon defeat, meaning the likes of Thiago Silva, Casemiro, Richarlison and Alisson Becker are all set to return for this game.

The big focus will be on Neymar as he looks to shake off an ankle injury in time for the knockouts, which was the initial timeframe handed out for his recovery. Tite expects Neymar to start this evening.

Alex Sandro is still out, though Danilo should return alongside Neymar. Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has been lost for the tournament due to injury.
