Player of the Match: Vinicius Junior

No prizes for guessing the Player of the Match as two-goal hero Vinicius Junior took home another memento. Spectacular display from the Brazilian who showed he is the man to rely upon in Neymar’s absence. Scored twice, completed seven dribbles, and also made important passes.


Brazil, after a dull first game, looked to be in the flow against Paraguay. Vinicius’ first goal showed the samba in them is still there. Dorival Junior needs to be tactically perfect to set up his team so that they can be just as dominant against top South American teams. The talent is certainly still there.
