[LIVE@STREAM~#TV!]* Brazil vs Serbia Live Coverage
Thiago Silva is breaking records, tooThe Chelsea centre-back is about to captain his side in a World Cup for the third time, something that has never been done before. He took them to fourth place in 2014 (they lost 7-1 to Germany, ouch) and the quarter final in 2018, where they lost to Belgium, 2-1. Brazil look in good spiritsIt's never a bad time to dance, I suppose. Ghana did it on their way in, and it almost worked beautifully. Are we in for another goal-filled football party? With that ine-up from Tite a scary 4-2-4 with Neymar, Vinicius, Raphinha and Richarlison up top, something tells me we’re in for a yummy football treat.

Brazil vs Serbia, World Cup 2022 live: Richarlison scores
Neymar gets a huge cheer from the crowd (that is mostly yellow and singing a lovely tune) after he presses well. An attack from Serbia! Well, a bit. They got within 30 metres of the goal before Alex Sandro stole the ball. Shot from Casemiro from distance! Safely held by Milinkovic Savic. I know I've not said much about Serbia, but Brazil's press is so intense that every time I look to the pitch they've lost the ball. Neymar fouled after another bit of skill from Vinicius. I think he's heard everyone talk non-stop about how good Pedri and Bellingham are. A close call for the Serbia goalkeeper as he's put under pressure by Raphinha and his pass is only a few centimetres away from touching the boot of the Barça man.
SAVE FROM MILINKOVIC SAVIC. Vinicius receives the ball on the left wing and burns past Zivkovic to the byline. Corner. Brazil's front 4 press well and Paquetá wins the ball back in the middle of the pitch after a loose ball from Veljkovic. They look very comfortable - and very motivated - both in and out of possession. Brazil make me feel fizzy as they set off on a lightning-fast counter-attack, with Raphinha sprinting down the right wing like he's trying to take off into the air. Neymar gets the ball from Vinicius and skips past what seems like 300 players inside the box before eventually losing his powers of invisibility - and the ball.
Neymar gets tackled and his shirt ends up on the floor. His whole shirt. I don't understand. Raphinha realises it's all a bit loco and asks for calm from Paquetá after he rushes a pass that goes out for a goal kick. Early yellow for Pavlovic after crashing into Neymar. Raphinha will be happy about that, as he's on his side. Vinicius again with electric feet as he skips past a Serbia player who thought he could tackle him.

Just under twenty minutes to go... Another corner for Serbia; all the big men are in the box. And it's very dangerous! Chances galore as 3 players head the ball left and right across the goal line but Brazil clear. Corner for Serbia after good work from Vlahovic. This is perhaps where they could find some joy. Headed over by Pavlovic, who's been excellent today. BIG CHANCE FOR BRAZIL! Vinicius breaks away on his own but slips just as he makes contact with the ball. We've all been there, Vini.

He had to make the challenge as the winger was away. This is a huge chance, perfectly placed for a shot on the left of the box. Neymar over the ball... ONE VS ONE SAVED BY MILINKOVIC SAVICRAPHINHA MISSED A CLEAR CHANCE! WHAT A SAVE! A huge defensive error leaves Raphinha one versus one with the Serbia goalkeeper who pulls off an amazing save to keep the score level. The referee blew the whistle to start the game and about 50% of the players had no idea what was happening. Me neither.
It makes me bobble my head. Serbia, fair play. That was very well shouted by all. Longer than a line of crocodiles, but a nice tune. Time for the football! The players are in the tunnel and the pre-match light show is underway! We are in for a yummy football treatThanks to Sofascore for allowing me to steal these tactical lineups, showing us the delights we're about to see and frankly making me as excited as a small dog chasing a butterfly. Serbia are no lightweightsThiago Silva's nemesis for the evening is Mitrovic, who is scoring for fun in the Premier League with Fulham. For years he was the captain of the team of players that could not make it in the Premier League after shining in England's second division, but he's make a lot of people eat humble pie this year, and comes into the World Cup in devastating form.

Serbia somehow retrieve the ball from him and run up the other end. This game has started at full-pace. Vini with some delightful skill to open up the pitch (the crowd went craazy). He passes wide to Raphinha but his cross hits a defender. Serbia pressing Brazil like crazy in the opening minutes, like a swarm of red beetles. Richarlison is up front, with Neymar in behind. Vini on the left and Raphinha on the right. Brazil wearing the classic yellow (Dynamic yellow, according to Nike), blue shorts and white socks. Lovely. Serbia in all red. National anthem time! I love the Brazil one.
But let's not forget about Serbia, who have their own threats, with Mitrovic and Tadic ready to start. It will be interesting to see if manager Dragan Stojkovic (who has the best name of the World Cup) looks to ex-Real Madrid goalsco- well, player, Luka Jovic at any point during the game. Neymar is looking to break a World Cup recordBrazil, who are currently ranked number one in the world, will be looking to end a 24-year wait to lift football’s greatest trophy. To help them, they’ve got Neymar, who is just 2 goals away from Pelé’s total of 77. The PSG forward has got 15 goals in 20 games this season for his club, so he comes into the World Cup in fiery form. The answer to the pre-match quiz was...
Brazil v Serbia LIVE: Neymar starts along with Richarlison and
Neymar is brought down after a snaking run in the middle of the pitch. The Serbians got annoyed. The corner is cleared well by Paquetá. Radonjic almost makes an instant impact as a cross from the left almost finds him inside the box. Alex Sandro clears. Serbia changesOFF: Zivkovic and GudeljON: Ilic, Radonjic Another chance! A practically identical set-up to the previous one: Vinicius finds space on the left, but this time his low cross to Neymar is hit wide. They're getting closer... Chance! Vinicius bursts away on the left wing, somehow keeping the ball in play first on the touchline and then the byline after two defenders try to squash him.
Vinicius has looked livelier than a bag of ants and is causing the defender all kinds of issues every time he gets the ball. He's already been fouled a few times. Serbia creep forward with the ball before they meet Brazil's mid-block. The South Americans spring their trap and push the Europeans all the way back to their goalkeeper. The corner was swung in close to the goalkeeper from Neymar and the Serbia goalkeeper has to stop it from going in the back of the net. THE CORNER WAS GOING IN.
He puts a cross in for Neymar but the PSG forward's header misses the ball and he lands on the ground with a splat. What a tackle from Pavlovic on Raphinha! He was away inside the box and the defender's last-second effort was perfectly timed. Another match-saving tackle. Against the wall! Corner. Neymar puts the ball in and Richarlison swings a boot towards it, but it's cleared. Yellow for Gudelj after a blatant foul on Neymar right on the edge of the box.
