Vinicius Jr pulled off a magical pass in Brazil’s friendly victory against Ghana on Friday evening.

Brazil fielded a strong XI for their match against The Black Stars in France.

Neymar, Raphinha, Vinicius and Richarlison all started to form a star-studded attack.

And Brazil, who go into the World Cup late this year as one of the favourites, had far too much for their opponents.

Tite’s side cruised to a 3-0 victory at Stade Oceane.

All of their goals came in the first half, courtesy of a Marquinhos header and a Richarlison brace.

VINICIUS JR CHANNELS INNER LUKA MODRIC

Brazil could – and should – have scored even more goals.

Raphinha was guilty of missing a golden opportunity after a stunning Vinicius cross in the first half.

The Real Madrid winger, who has established himself as one of the best wingers in the world, picked up the ball in a dangerous area and made his way into Ghana’s box.

Vinicius picked his head up and saw Raphinha arriving at the back post.

The 22-year-old proceeded to find his international teammate with an insane cross with the outside of his boot.

The ball curled around the defender and straight into the path of the Barcelona star.

Unfortunately, Raphinha did not do Vinicius’ pass justice and could only put his effort from close range well over the bar.

Absolutely gorgeous. It’s just a shame that it did not end up being an assist.

Luka Modric, who has become known for his ability to produce pin-point passes with the outside of his foot, would have been proud of his club teammate.

Football fans have been reacting to Vinicius’ moment of magic and you can view some reaction below…

WHAT NEXT FOR VINICIUS AND BRAZIL?

Brazil are next in action when they take on Tunisia on Tuesday. That’ll be their last game before the World Cup starts in November.

Brazil have been placed in Group G of this year’s tournament in Qatar and open their campaign against Serbia on November 27.

With Vinicius in full flow, Brazil have a great chance of winning their sixth World Cup title and their first since 2002.
