Brazil 4-1 South Korea: Neymar's Return Makes Son Heung-min Full Of Tears

Neymar returned from injury and converted a first-half penalty in Brazil's 4-1 round-of-16 triumph over South Korea on Monday. He scored 76 goals for the national team, one less than Pele, who declared he would watch the game from his hospital bed in Sao Paulo. "I was very scared," Neymar said. "It was very difficult after getting injured as I did. I was crying the entire night. My family knows what I had to go through. But in the end, it all worked out. It was worth the effort to keep undergoing physiotherapy."
Brazil sent a powerful message to their numerous World Cup opponents with a stunning performance against South Korea, earning them a berth in the Qatar 2022 quarter-finals against Croatia. Vinicius Junior, Neymar, Richarlison, and Lucas Paqueta all scored in the first half, with South Korea's Paik Seung-ho pulling one back late on. Following their triumph, Brazil's players brought a banner with Pele's name onto the pitch to show their support for the 82-year-old football legend, who is still in hospital in Sao Paulo.

After the game, Alisson talked to Fox about extending well wishes to Pele. "Everyone knows that Pele's health is not going well". He means a lot to us Brazilians, and he means a lot to football.
"A small message from our team to him that we are praying for him, for him to get better, that we are together with him, that he's not alone. You'll never walk alone. He will not walk alone at this hard moment, his family will not walk alone.  "We are with them even if we are far away. So if we can fight here at the World Cup and win games for him and win the competition for him, we will do that."

#2. Tite Was Happy He Had The Chance To Dance.

Richarlison spoke about Brazil's dancing after the win: "We rehearsed that celebration together with the coach, and he was very happy he had the chance to use it. "Football is like that. One is going to win, the other is going to lose, and I wish all the best to Son. I hope he remains at his best because I need him at Tottenham. "I'm also friends with Ivan Perisic, and I hope we'll both play the next match. I wish the best for him, and hope he remains at his best, so we can play well at Tottenham."

Paulo Bento resigned as South Korea's manager following their 4-1 loss to Brazil. Bento, 53, has led the South Korean national team since 2018. He won 35 of his 57 matches as a coach, but South Korea was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2019 Asian Cup and could not upset the odds today.
Following that defeat, Bento said: “I have just announced to the players and the president of the federation that this is a decision I took in September. “It is set in stone and I have confirmed it. I have to thank everyone for everything they have done."

#4. Son: 'This Is The Gap Between The Players'.

Son spoke to FS1 following the tough loss. On today's opponent, he said: "Brazil is a favorite and one of the best teams in the world. All of their players are world-class players. We tried to do everything but Brazil deserved to win. "What can I say? We prepared well and gave everything but this is the gap between the players. But I don't blame our players because they gave everything and we will move on. Going out of the World Cup is not easy, but yeah". is a website that provides you with Entertainment updates and creative ideas to brighten your day.
