Doha: A second-half brace from Richarlison ensured record five-time champions Brazil cruised to a 2-0 victory over Serbia in their opening FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group H match. Serbia failed to register a shot on target as star striker Alexander Mitrovic cut a frustrated figure before he was substituted.
The South Americans dominated the match but met a determined Serbian defence. However, with the likes of Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Raphinha and Richarlison, Brazil's immense option of talent put their quality on display as they embark on winning a trophy they last lifted 20 years ago.
Brazil will next play Switzerland, who pipped Cameroon by a lone goal earlier on Monday, while Serbia will slog it out with the Africans.
