Tottenham Hotspur star Richarlison reacts to his unbelievable goal against Serbia
Richarlison scored both goals for his country in what was an impressive showing from the Brazilian man. The Tottenham striker had his critics for being selected for the World Cup but what a way that was to silence his doubters!
The first goal from Richarlison was a striker’s finish with the Tottenham man benefitting from being at the right place at the right time. No one can take the second goal away from the former Everton man though.
Richarlison produced a skill of absolute genius for the second goal when he flicked Vinicius Jr.’s low cross up in the air and produced an acrobatic overhead finish that left the Serbian keeper absolutely stunned.
After the game, Richy took to Instagram to post a video of him pulling off the exact same finish in training and the game, which showed that it was not a one-off that the Tottenham man produced such a moment.
Speaking about the goal on Instagram, here is what Richarlison had to say about that excellent finish
“As the poet would say: practice is practice; game is game!”
Richarlison was selected by Tite in the Brazilian squad ahead of Roberto Firmino and he even got the starting nod ahead of in-form Arsenal star striker Gabriel Jesus. It’s safe to say
The Tottenham striker will now be hoping to continue in a similar vein and help Brazil this World Cup. There is a reason Tite’s side are considered favourites in Qatar and a fit-and-firing Richarlison only makes the prospect more real.
