Brazil sauntered to a 4-1 victory over South Korea in the World Cup last 16, with Manchester United star Casemiro playing all 90 minutes.

The Selecao scored four first half goals, with South Korea netting a consolation in the second half after Brazil eased off, and even swapped goalkeepers.

One moment in particular stood out, when returning forward Neymar picked out injured defender Alex Telles in the crowd to celebrate with him.

Telles left the pitch tearlessly in Brazil’s final group game against Cameroon after sustaining an injury.

The Manchester United man is currently on loan at Sevilla and could now face months on the sidelines.

Telles is still in Qatar cheering on his side, and Neymar showed his appreciation of the left-back by picking him out in the crowd after scoring his penalty, the second goal in the 4-1 win.

Injured star Telles looked thrilled with the recognition, which will have lifted his spirits amid a tough time for him.

Telles was previously sent a message of best wishes by legendary Brazil left-back Roberto Carlos after his injury.

United stars Fred and Antony were both unused substitutes in the win, with Casemiro as always playing a vital role.
