    Vinicius Junior set the tone with a composed penalty-area finish from Raphinha’s cross after seven minutes. Neymar doubled Brazil’s advantage from the spot six minutes later after Richarlison had been fouled, scoring his 76th goal for Brazil, which leaves him just one goal behind the legendary Pele’s record.

    Richarlison then produced the highlight and another entry into his showreel of great goals at this World Cup when he followed up his spectacular volley against Serbia with a real work of art, controlling the ball three times with his head and foot before moving into position take Thiago Silva’s pass in his stride and score.

    Brazil went four up with another gem after 36 minutes, Vinicius picking out Lucas Paqueta for West Ham’s expensive acquisition to score with a well-placed volley.

      South Korea, to their great credit, continued to compete and forced several fine saves from Brazil keeper Alisson, before substitute Paik Seung-ho pulled one back with a glorious 30-yard strike to add to the night’s collection of special goals.

      For 45 minutes at Stadium 974, Brazil hit heights no other team has reached at this World Cup, demonstrating the level that will be required to overcome Tite’s team, producing a collection of goals constructed in their country’s best traditions.
