Brazil were pre-tournament favourites to win the World Cup, they remain so after the group phase, and they’re certainly overwhelming favourites to advance through this tie.
Bizarrely though, Brazil were actually the lowest scorers in Group G, a section they ended up topping. On Friday night, having already beaten both Serbia and Switzerland, Tite rotated heavily for their final game against Cameroon.
A Seleção could not find the breakthrough and, thanks to a stoppage time goal, were beaten by an African side at the World Cup for the very first time.
Earlier on Friday, Korea Republic booked their place in the knockout stages in dramatic circumstances. The Taegeuk Warriors came from a goal down to beat Portugal 2-1; Kim Young-gwon equalising, before Hwang Hee-chan won it in stoppage time.
With Uruguay winning 2-0 simultaneously, Paulo Bento’s team snuck through on goal scored alone. So, this is just Korea’s second appearance in the knockout phase on foreign soil, beaten by the aforementioned Uruguay at this stage 12 years ago.
South Korea have certainly been entertaining and an attacking threat at this tournament, but Brazil will be far too strong at Stadium 974, right?
