LUCIL, Qatar (AP) — Richarlison scored twice, the second with a stunning acrobatic kick, to help Brazil beat Serbia 2-0 at the World Cup on Thursday.
In the 73rd minute, the striker used a touch to lift the ball into the air and then spun around and down the ground before hitting the ball into the net with his right foot.
Brazil were struggling to break through the Serbian defense until Richarlison scored from close range in the 62nd, opening with Neymar.
Vinicius Jr. assisted on both goals.
Neymar, in search of his first major title with Brazil, remains on 75 goals for the national team, two shy of Pele’s goalscoring record.
