In the 29th minute, the Seleção "hid" the ball and showed it in Kim's net: Richarlison made an incredible triangle with the defenders (!) Marquinhos and Thiago Silva, he became the recipient again and scored brilliantly for 3-0, reminiscent of Brazil of other times.

In the 47th minute, after a cross and Marquinios' careless marking, Sean came out in a four-four with Alisson, who saved with his shoulder in a corner!

With the pace completely free and opportunities being lost on both sides, Korea sought at least the goal of "honor" and found it in the 76th minute, with a "fireball" by newly arrived Seung-Ho Paik! outside the area, with the ball countering and ending up in the net.
