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.

  1. It is fair to say that Moyes does not get the best out of the entire squad . Wait till we see the line up for the arsenal game. Kehrer, bowen, soucek all yet again the team. 3 defensive midfielders. 5 at the back!! I still cannot figure out why he has not been sacked. Moyes is either blind, stupid or too stubborn to change if he cant see that we need more creative players on the pitch. Last night Brazil played 5 attacking players. We often only play 2 under Moyes. He has to go this us gone on for a year now. He has to go before good players want to leave.
