Brazil was at its imperious finest, swatting away Korea Republic in a whirlwind first 45 minutes. The gamers from Latina America have been faster, relaying on the years of taking part in collectively to safe a 4-0 lead whereas taking part in a sport which no person else may have performed.
“We were better, very aggressive and solid in the first half, we knew that the main work would be today, the team rested in the last game, which many said was the right choice, I am loyal to the side in any case, I think it was right that’s why we played the game we played today,” veteran defender Thiago Silva stated within the combined zone after the sport.
Whereas the attackers went on a rampage, the Brazilian defence, too, held its form within the first half, however have been left a bit of stretched as Korea got here out stronger after the restart. “I believe it’s the balance between defence and attack. I’ve heard a lot of people talk in terms of a very rigid selection, but I think that’s a word that doesn’t really fit us. We have complete freedom, especially up front. It’s possible that today’s (defensive) game wasn’t very good and I’m just not 100 percent satisfied because we conceded a goal,” Silva stated.
The Brazilians are assured about their very own talents and usually are not nervous about Croatia, their subsequent opponent, or Argentina, who they might face within the semifinals.
“It’s not our intention to be afraid. In the present day we performed certainly one of our greatest video games, particularly within the first half, we virtually settled there as we performed with a little bit of calm. I believe we dropped it a bit within the second half as we ran unnecessarily and conceded a objective. It should function a lesson for the following video games, the Chelsea defender stated.
