Barcelona World Cup spotlight: A hit-and-miss WC debut for Raphinha

Despite a quiet day in terms of Barcelona’s representations at the World Cup, Thursday gave us a number of excellent matches to watch. The showpiece event definitely does not disappoint and continues to enthrall us with its sheer unpredictability.

Switzerland faced off against Cameroon in the earliest kick-off on the day and the game ended 1-0 with Breel Embolo netting against his country of birth.

Uruguay took on South Korea in a tepid affair next, with the game ending 0-0 draw. It was a game of missed opportunities for both sides, especially the South Americans, and the two teams would like to forget this game and move on.

The next game, however, did not disappoint one bit though. Portugal played Ghana in what was an exciting clash from start to finish and in the end, the result could have gone either way. Ultimately, it was the European team that prevailed, winning 3-2 against the African country.

The final match on the day was arguably the most exciting one, at least on paper though, with Brazil taking on Serbia. The Selecao are considered favourites to lift the World Cup whilst Serbia were more than capable of holding their own. Ultimately, the game ended 2-0 in favour of Brazil.

Raphinha was the only Barcelona player in action at the World Cup on Thursday. We at Barça Universal take a look at the Brazilian along with a few ex-Barça players who were on show.

Luis Suarez (Uruguay vs South Korea)

El Pistolero started his country’s opening World Cup clash against South Korea alongside Darwin Nunez in the attack. It was an afternoon to forget for the former Barcelona striker though, who just could not get involved in the game.

In the 64 minutes that he was on the pitch, Suarez had a mere 18 touches of the ball, completing just 50% of his 14 passes, and did not have a single shot on or off target. Very poor for the 35-year-old.

Raphinha (vs Serbia)

The Barcelona winger had a pretty decent game overall. As usual, he was willing to track back and help and his work…
