Richarlison struck twice as Brazil beat Serbia 2-0
Richarlison struck twice as Brazil beat Serbia 2-0

Tottenham forward Richarlison netted twice for Brazil as the tournament favourites broke down Serbia’s stubborn resistance to begin their campaign with an impressive victory.

The Samba Boys had to play a patient game to overcome an organised Serbia rearguard but forced the breakthrough after 62 minutes when Richarlison turned home a close-range finish after Vanja Milinkovic-Savic saved Vinicius Junior’s effort.

Richarlison’s crowning moment came 11 minutes later, at first mis-controlling a pass from Vinicius but readjusting brilliantly to take the aerial route and fire home an acrobatic right-foot finish.

It was no more than Brazil – backed by the massed ranks of their yellow-clad fans – deserved as they dominated throughout, with Alex Sandro and Casemiro hitting the woodwork and Milinkovic-Savic also saving superbly from Fred.

Brazil’s performance made ominous viewing for their rivals, as did the sight of Gabriel Jesus, Antony and Gabriel Martinelli coming off the bench in a powerful show of squad strength, although there was the worrying sight of Neymar going off after taking a knock.
