Salem Aldawsari’s decisive goal for Saudi Arabia against Argentina had been the main contender for the best goal of the World Cup on Thursday, but Richarlison probably beat it.
The Brazilians knocked on the door for a long time before Richarlison converted his first in the 62nd minute. It didn’t take long after that for the stunning second goal.
The Selecão afternoon went according to plan against Serbia, with a dominating performance leading to three points and a successful World Cup opener. Brazil enters the tournament as one of the favorites, and this performance will do little to prevent it.
The Brazilians dominated possession, shot on goal and eventually beat the Serbs at the start. They will go top of Group G alongside Switzerland, who beat Cameroon 1-0 early Thursday.
With a 2-0 win, however, Brazil lead on goal differential.
