Neymar limped off injured as Richarlison saved Brazil

Richarlison was a huge hero for Brazil in their opening match against Serbia, but all of Brazil was holding its breath at the seriousness of Neymar’s injury.

After just over an hour, the Tottenham forward was ahead in response and sent the favorites charging forward. But it was Richarlison’s second goal that stole the headlines.

Vinicius Jr. pulling free down the left flank, and with the outside he sent a cross towards Richarlison. The cross dropped the striker beautifully, and with a full volley he clipped home for his second score.

Casemiro came close to making it 3-0 with barely ten minutes remaining, but a long shot hit the crossbar.

Raphinha also had some good chances to score for Brazil but a weak finish sent Serbia off with a scare.

One line in the bill for Brazil is their big star Neymar limping through injury. He sits on a bench with a suit over his head and gets ice on his ankle.

Serbia managed to keep Brazil from the best scoring chances in the first half, but struggled to keep pace as the match went into the second half.

The closest the Reds have come to a goal is a corner which Brazil manages to keep out.

The yellow and blue teams from South America are the favorites to win the entire tournament, and lead their group on goal difference over Switzerland.
