Brazil fans rejoice after beating Serbia at World Cup

STORY: Soccer fans flocked to Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro dressed in the yellow and green of their team to watch the Brazil national team's debut at the World Cup in Qatar.

Brazilians celebrated by dancing to the rhythm of the samba on the beach shore.

Brazil outclassed Serbia as Richarlison's second-half goals, including a spectacular overhead kick, propelled the five-times champions to the top of Group G.

An almost perfect night for Brazil was, however, soured when Neymar came off in the 80th minute with what looked like an ankle injury after a crunching tackle from Nikola Milenkovic.
