FIFA World Cup 2022 Brazil vs Serbia highlights: Richarlison scored twice, the second of which was a sensational bicycle kick, as a dominant Brazil started their tournament off with an emphatic win.
FIFA World Cup 2022 Brazil vs Serbia highlights: A second-half brace by Richarlison, including a stunning overhead scissor kick, gave tournament favourites Brazil a 2-0 win over Serbia in their opening World Cup game at the Lusail Stadium on Thursday. The record five-time winners had toiled at times in the first half but they exploded into relentless attack in the second half and their effots were rewarded when Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison followed in to score the opener in the 62nd minute when a Vinicius Junior shot was saved. Vinicius then set up Richarlison to score again in the 73rd minute with a stunning acrobatic effort that is surely the goal of the World Cup so far.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Score: FULL TIME! Brazil 2-0 Serbia
The Selecao show ends, till next time. The 2-0 scoreline is very flattering indeed for Serbia. If Raphinha had converted the chances he had and if those long range shots from the truly majestic Casemiro and Fred had gone in, this would have been a 5-0 or even 6-0 win for Brazil. Serbia had no shots on target at all throughout the match, Brazil had eight of them. A scary display of talent from Brazil and if there was any doubts for anyone as to why they should put them as their favourites, this match should answer them. Neymar was taken off as a precaution as he was kicked far too many times but it's not like they were dependent on him, they have riches all over the pitch and on the bench. Imagine having to defend against the likes of Raphinha, Richarlison, Neymar and Vinicius for about 80 minutes of the match, and then against the guys substituting them, who would be Antony, Martinelli, Jesus and Rodrygo. Then there is the imperious Casemiro in midfield, assisted by Fred who has been impressive this season for Manchester United, and then comes that centre back duo of Marquinhos and Thiago Silva with full backs like Sandro and Danilo. To square it all off there is Allison in goal and if he can't play, Ederson will take his place. Phew!

81 min: An injury scare? Neymar was limping a bit as he left the field, though nobody seemed too worried. Meanwhile, the magic dust of Richarlison has been taken off alongwith Neymar. They have been replaced by the magic dust of Antony and Gabriel Jesus. Brazil are a ridiculously talented team.

BRA vs SRB Live, FIFA World Cup: Chance goes abegging for Raphinha!
35 min: Brazil should be a goal up. Raphinha cuts in from the right, plays a one-two with Paqueta and then goes for the shot which is just woefully tame. The goalkeepers holds without any problem.

14 mins: These Brazilian forwards are putting on a show so far. We saw Raphinha leavinng Pavlovic behind, then the laser pass from Casemiro, and now Vinicius with a scorching run from the left that Real Madrid fans would be all too familiar with.

BRA vs SRB Live, FIFA World Cup: Early chance for Neymar!

Brazil vs Serbia Live Score: Neymar under the radar?
Wayne Rooney points out in the studio that Neymar, as big a star as he is, seems to have flown under the radar a bit in the buildup to Brazil's first match of the tournament due to Messi's Argentina crashing to Saudi Arabia and the soap opera around Ronaldo. That might actually be a good thing for him considering just how good he has been for PSG this season.
