Casemiro has been excellent for Brazil in the FIFA World Cup and he impressed once again for the Selecao in their dominating 4-1 win over South Korea.
Brazil will face Croatia in the Round of 16 of the competition, as goals from Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta saw them through in what was a sparkling first half performance from Tite’s side. But Casemiro’s performance in midfield was also excellent.
The Manchester United midfielder, as per Sofascore, won as many as six ground duels out of the total eight of them that he contested. He also won four tackles in midfield, showcasing his ability to win the ball back from the opposition. He was also effective in possession, as he had 86 touches through which he managed to play 74 passes with an accuracy of 84 percent.
He wasn’t dribbled past even once and throughout the game, there were instances of him spotting spaces and taking the right touches when being pressed, allowing his team to transition from back to front quickly.
