Richarlison scores ‘one of greatest goals in World Cup history’ as Brazil star nets stunning acrobatic overhead kick against Serbia

    Richarlison… take a bow.

    The Brazil star scored a truly magnificent, acrobatic, goal as his side made their mark on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

    The Tottenham forward was the man of the moment as he scored two goals against Serbia in their opening group game.

    The first was a tap in to put Brazil a goal ahead, but the second could not have been more different.

    Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr crossed the ball in for the Tottenham ace.

    His first touch knocked it up in the air and he then acrobatically lashed it into the goal.

    talkSPORT commentator Joe Shennan said: “What a goal, one of the greatest in World Cup history. Richarlison with the most acrobatic, spectacular overhead kick.

    “It is a magic moment, a moment never to be forgotten. It was simply brilliant from Richarlison. Genius. That was truly magnificent.”

    talkSPORT co-commentator Dean Ashton added: “This is an absolute work of art and it’s Richarlison’s masterpiece… in the World Cup.

    “He just flicks it up and produces the most outrageous, acrobatic overhead kick into the bottom corner. Wow! That is unbelievable.”

    Richarlison was then mobbed by his teammates as they danced by the corner flag to seal a 2-0 win.

    It was some World Cup debut for the Spurs ace as Brazil entered the tournament in some style.

    His two World Cup goals are now the same number as Ronaldinho managed.

    Richarlison has been truly unstoppable for his country of late, scoring nine goals in his last seven games for his country.
