Brazil vs. South Korea live updates: Brazil leading 4-0 at half

The 2022 FIFA World Cup Continues Monday on FOX with Brazil (2-0-1) dominating South Korea (1-1-1) at Stadium 974 in Ras Abu Aboud, Qatar in the tournament’s sixth match of the round of 16.

Brazilian superstar Neymar — who hasn’t played since his team’s opening game due to a ligament injury — is back in action and already making a splash in this highly anticipated win-or-go-home match.

The winner will advance to play Croatia — which defeated Japan via penalty kicks earlier Monday — in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Here are the top plays!

8′: And we’re off!

17′: What could have been

Japan was aggressive after falling into a 2-0 hole but wasn’t able to capitalize on the next few chances it had.

Brazil keeper Alisson, who didn’t face a single shot on goal in the two games he started in the group stage, came up with a clutch save to keep Japan off the board.

29′: Party in Doha!

Brazil took a 3-0 lead near the half-hour mark, thanks to Richarlison’s fancy footwork.

36′: When it rains, it pours

Brazil extended its lead to 4-0 after Lucas Paquetá’s goal — his first of this World Cup — late in the first half.

39′: Style points

Brazil continued to pour it on as the first half came to a close, keeping South Korea off the board altogether.
