Richarlison opened the scoring for Brazil after a tense first half in Doha.
The Seleção are one of the favorites to win this year’s World Cup with their outstanding talent within the squad.
However, Serbia had prepared for their opener with the five-time world champions and looked calm in the first half with a controlled approach to their opening game.
Tottenham Hotspur’s summer signing set up Brazil’s first goal of the tournament in the 62nd minute with a vital tap.
Neymar showed excellent footwork before Vinicius Jr. fired a shot from within, which was saved by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic. However, the goalkeeper’s stop fell to Richarlison, who finished the chance with ease.
