Lucas Paquetá capped a great game for the Brazilians against South Korea with a fine goal in the 4-1 win.
And afterwards former Hammer Craig Forrest took a pop at West Ham boss David moyes declaring on Twitter: ” “I think it’s fair to say that West Ham (David Moyes) doesn’t get the best out of Lucas Paqueta ?”
Paqueta was like a different player on the pitch tonight that West Ham supporters have been used to producing an utterly magnificent performance.
He grabbed the final goal with a super volley into the top corner of the net after meeting Vinícius Júnior’s chipped cross with a controlled volley and notch his eighth goal in his country’s famous Yellow and Blue.
The Hammers midfielder was in great form and showed precisely what a good player he is when played in the correct position
Brazil were irresistible in a scorching first half display as they went into a four-goal lead to leave South Korea’s hopes shattered.
Júnior grabbed the first when he pounced on Raphinha’s cutback to take a touch and loft into the top corner.
Six minutes later Neymar made it two from the spot and South Korea were already facing an uphill task.
Richarlison finished off a flowing move, while Lucas Paquetá’s moment arrived nine minutes before the interval.
South Korea pulled one back after half-time through Paik Seung-ho, but Brazil – and Lucas Paquetá – had already completed their task in style, setting up a last-eight meeting with Croatia on Friday.
