World Cup 2022 highlights: Brazil dominates South Korea, 4-1

The FIFA World Cup 2022 continues Monday on FOX with Brazil dominating South Korea 4-1 at Stadium 974 in Ras Abu Aboud, Qatar in the tournament’s sixth round of 16 match.

Brazilian Superstar Neymar returned to action for the first time since suffering a ligament injury in his team’s tournament opener. With the win, Brazil advanced to face Croatia — which beat Japan on penalties earlier Monday — in Friday’s quarterfinals (7 a.m. ET, FOX).

Here is the best acting!
