Neymar inspires Brazil to win in Korea
Goals either side of half time saw Brazil get past South Korea in Seoul as they continue to prepare for next year’s World Cup.
Barcelona striker Neymar gave the Seleção the lead just before the break with Oscar sealing the win four minutes into the second half.
21-year-old Neymar lit up an uneventful first half when he won a free kick 25-years from goal before curling the ball past Korea keeper Jung.
Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men went into half time a goal to the good and it wasn’t long before they had doubled their advantage.
On 49 minutes Paulinho played a superb defence splitting pass into the feet of his Premier League rival Oscar who coolly beat the goalkeeper to slot the ball into an empty goal.
Without being at their fluent best, the World Cup hosts looked in control during a tough test in the Far East but a solid display including a standout display from Chelsea defender David Luiz saw them run out 2-0 winners.
Both Luiz Gustavo and Hernanes had chances late on to make it three but fortunately for the Seleção these missed chases didn’t come back to haunt them.
