It’s contender vs. underdog next in the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Brazil, one of the top teams competing in Qatar, is coming off a 1-0 loss to Cameroon where it played its B-team, but the result didn’t matter as it still clinched first place in Group G. The Seleção had beaten Serbia 2-0 and Switzerland 1-0 in rock-solid performances from its key starters in the first two group games.
South Korea, on the other hand, pulled off a miraculous 2-1 upset against Portugal thanks to a late Hwang Hee-chan goal. The Taegeuk Warriors advanced in second place in Group H after topping Uruguay based on goals scored. South Korea tied Uruguay 0-0 in the head-to-head matchup to open the tournament and lost 3-2 to Ghana but had fate on its side to reach the knockout stage.
