Brazil sets two Unique Records After Emphatic Win Over South Korea

Brazil set a unique record on Monday, December 5, during their emphatic victory over South Korea in the World Cup round of 16.

The Brazilians were simply too good for the South Koreans, as they shipped in four goals to set up a quarter-final clash against Croatia.

In truth, the game was a one-sided affair, as the Selecao went 3-0 up within the first 30 minutes thanks to goals from Vinicius Jr., Neymar and Richarlison.

Lucas Pacqueta then made it 4-0 in the first half, although the Tigers of Asia pulled one back in the second half thanks to a wonder strike from Paik Seung-ho.

With the game well and truly won, Brazil boss Tite decided to switch things up a bit, introducing third-choice gloveman Weverton Pereira da Silva in the 80th minute in the place of Liverpool man Alisson.

It was a unique move that was not motivated by any tactics, since Tite’s side had already won the game in the first half.

The decision to bring in Weverton meant Brazil became the first nation to use all 26 players from the squad list in the same World Cup tournament, as per Opta Joe.

 Brazil also scored four goals in one half, for the first time since doing so against Mexico in 1954.
