At a glance
Brazil and Serbia were the last two sides to play their first match at the World Cup, and while it was one-way traffic for a considerable amount of time, it took over an hour for the breakthrough to register. But once it did, it was emphatic.
Richarlison’s double lifted Brazil to a 2–0 victory, with his second goal coming in sensational fashion. The first was on a boilerplate rebound of a saved shot.
His brace was secured in considerably more difficult fashion, as he volleyed a cross up for himself only to scissor kick it home for a strike that will surely be a goal-of-the-tournament contender—if not a Puskas Award contender as well.
