Soccer: Did you know? Dani Alves and the record that justifies his return to the ‘Seleção’
YESTERDAY AT 16:07
Referee: Barton. He admonished Pieper, Stach, Luiz, Hendirics and Torunarigha and expelled Arnold
Goals: 1-0, Richarlison (7 ‘); 2-0, Richarlison (22 ‘); 3-0, Richarlison (30 ‘); 3-1, Amiri (57 ‘), 3-2, Arche (83’), Paulinho (90 + 3 ‘).
Despite the pressure of debuting in such an important event for an athlete such as the Olympic Games, Brazil did not take long to show Germany that what happened in Rio 2016 was no accident.
The yellow hurricane was rewarded for its attacking start with a goal from Richarlison in the 8th minute. The Everton player took advantage of the rejection of a previous shot that he himself had made to overcome Müller.
Richarlison himself had the second goal in his boots shortly after. But, after beating the German goalkeeper with an exquisite cut, he got confused and ended up crashing a shot safely on the German defense, who reacted in time.
However, the star forward of the ‘canarinha’ took advantage of an Arana center to the heart of the area to head the one that would mean the second goal for Brazil. Germany did not respond and the yellows liked each other on the Yokohama grass.
The ’10’ from Brazil could not go to the locker room without finishing his outstanding performance with a hat trick. Richarlison was back to beat a surpassed Müller and continue at will against an unrecognizable Germany.
Despite the fact that the Brazilian gale did not abate, it was not all going to be rain and storm for Müller. At the edge of the break, the German stopped a penalty against Cunha to compensate, to some extent, for the three times he had to collect the ball from the bottom of his goal.

Little changed in the game after the break. The German players continued without finding an answer and wandered on the grass without knowing what to do to find sensations.
It would be Amiri who would hide the disadvantage somewhat. The German took advantage of a loose ball up front to overtake Santos after he made a stranger when the Brazilian goalkeeper was about to stop him.
However, the misfortunes are stopped happening for Germany despite the goal. Arnold, who had already been booked in the first half, was sent off after a hard tackle and left his team with one less when he needed his captain most.
When it seemed that the expulsion had cut off the advance of the German team, Arche headed a great center to cut distances in 83 ‘. Germany tried to the end, but the Brazilian income was enough to take the victory despite the final suffering.
He did not have to correct any of the referee’s decisions.
