Soccer-Paulinho gives Brazil halftime lead against Serbia

MOSCOW, June 27 (Reuters) - Paulinho gave Brazil a 1-0 halftime lead over Serbia with a superbly-taken goal in their World Cup Group E match on Wednesday.

Philippe Coutinho lofted a pass forward from just inside the Serbia half and Paulinho timed his run perfectly to get between three defenders and flick the ball over goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic in the 36th minute.
