And just like that, it's 2-0 to Brazil. Neymar had been very quiet in the second half, but in his first major involvement he provided an absolutely vital assist. The Santos star scampered down the left, drifting through the South Korea defence before reaching the byline. Said defence held its breath as to what he'd do next. Would it be a low, driven cross through a packed six yard box? No, actually, it would be a slow cutback to the penalty spot, where Leandro Damiao lurked.
The Internacional centre forward met Neymar's pass perfectly, smashing in a low drive across Lee Bum-Young and into the back to the net to double the Selecao's lead. The Koreans had looked like good money to find an equaliser before that, but unless Brazil break down of their own accord (always a possibility), this match is done. The goal, incidentally, was Leandro Damiao's fifth of the tournament.
