Vinícius Júnior himself scored the fourth and most beautiful goal of the game against South Korea in the first half, with both sides typically swarming in the middle and taking possession on the left edge of the box.

Richarlison looked down at one from the sky. He flicks one towards Marquinhos, who enters the box, but deflects it back towards the big Casemiro — yes, that’s it. Another one. Casemiro fed it to Richarlison on the right and keeper Kim Seung-Gyu’s shot to the left appeared to be the case.
