World Cup: Brazil Beat Serbia as Cristiano Ronaldo Leads Portugal to Victory

Richarlison was the star of the show for Brazil, who beat Serbia 2-0 in fine style to wrap up day five of the World Cup from Qatar.

The Tottenham striker scored both of the game's goals in the second half, with the second a beautiful volley which lit up the match. It wasn't all good news for Brazil however, with Neymar going off injured following some rough treatment.

Earlier on, Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score at five World Cups after netting a penalty in Portugal's 3-2 win over Ghana.

The game was goalless after 65 minutes before exploding into life following Ronaldo's powerful penalty after a foul by Mohammed Salisu. Inaki Williams nearly earned Ghana a point at the death, but Portugal held on to go top of Group H after Uruguay drew 0-0 with South Korea.

Earlier in the day, Switzerland got their World Cup campaign off to an excellent start as they beat Cameroon 1-0 thanks to Breel Embolo's second-half effort. In the 1pm kick-off, Uruguay and South Korea played out one of the dullest matches in World Cup history as neither side had a shot on target in a 0-0 draw - the first time this has happened at the tournament since the start of the century.

Where England are concerned, there continues to be concerns over Harry Kane's fitness ahead of the Three Lions taking on the USA on Friday. We'll keep you up to date throughout the afternoon and evening on the latest news in Qatar.
