Richarlison scores Brazil’s tournament-winning goal, using incredible technique
The goal of the competition was scored by Richarlison to increase Brazil’s lead over Serbia in their World Cup debut.
In the 62nd minute, the Spurs striker opened the scoring by tapping in after Vanja Milinkovic-Savic could only parry Vinicius Jr.’s shot into his path.
In the 73rd minute, Richarlison scored his second goal, a strike that embodied the flare of Brazilian soccer. The No. 9 player for the Selecao laid on an unbelievable outside-of-the-boot assist from the left, and he displayed excellent ball control.
He executed the most spectacular acrobatic attempt when the ball was spinning in the air, flying beyond Milinkovic-Savic and eliciting gasps from everyone in the Lusail Stadium.
The ex-Everton man is surely leading the race for the 2022 World Cup’s best goal. However, he was not able to get his hat-trick after manager Tite elected to replace him for Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus.
