Brazil national team celebrates victory over Serbia
At the World Cup in Qatar, the first round of the group round ended, in which Brazil confirmed its status as one of the main favorites of the tournament.
Richarlison scored very beautifully, Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot, Uruguay and South Korea did not score at all. The first round of the group stage ended at the World Cup in Qatar. Correspondent.net summarizes the results of the fifth game day of the tournament.
Ronaldo = penalty
Cristiano took all the attention before the tournament thanks to scandals with Manchester United. But in Portugal’s first match at the World Cup, Ronaldo did not cause a scandal, but scored a goal that immediately set a number of records. Krish became the first player in history to score in five different World Cups in a row. That is, at every one in which Ronaldo participated, starting with the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Cristiano scored, of course, from the penalty spot. Why, of course? Because the 37-year-old Portuguese shot from the 11-meter mark for the fourth time at the World Championships, he made three attempts. No one in the history of the tournament has scored more penalties (not counting post-match series).
By the way, the coach of the Ghana national team was quite upset by the penalty. “Our player played the ball, and then there was contact with Ronaldo. I don’t know what the judges were doing at that time. Maybe the VAR referee was sleeping. It’s crazy they didn’t even watch the video replay. It was the wrong decision. After the match, I asked if I could speak to the referee. I got a reply that he was in a meeting and it was impossible. It would be good if he had a few minutes for the coach,” Otto Addo was indignant.
His boys really fought with dignity, and the Portuguese won thanks to two assists from Bruno Fernandes and a debut goal for the national team from Milan star and Mykhailo Mudryk fan Rafa Leau.
Brazil = power
The Brazil national team is the main favorite of the tournament, and Tite’s team proved it in the match against the Serbian national team. The Brazilians started hard, but in the second half crushed the opponent. A double on Richarlison’s account, the second goal turned out to be especially good, it is probably the best goal capture for the entire championship so far.
In the second half, the Brazilians hit the goal 18 times, and the Serbians – never.
Everything got mixed up
Switzerland won against Cameroon thanks to a goal by Embolo, who has African roots, and who did not celebrate taking the goal. The realities of 2022.
Well, Uruguay and South Korea scored zero. There were many Kims on the field.
In the first 16 matches of the World Cup, not a single red card was shown. This happened for the first time since 1986, when the tournament was held in Mexico.
