The Brazilian forward scored a hat-trick against Germany at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
Richarlison was the highlight of the first day of men’s soccer at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, scoring a hat-trick in Brazil’s 4-2 win over Germany.
The attacker, from the record of Everton of England, is one of the players over 23 years of age who accompanies the Brazilian delegation, and already makes a difference.
His hat-trick entered the history of Brazilian football, as it put him at the height of such glories as Romario or Bebeto.
Richarlison equaled this pair of forwards, and Gerson Canhotinha, and is the fourth Brazilian to score a hat-trick in an Olympics match. Bebeto had been the last with a triplet in the ‘Canarinha’, scoring against Portugal in 1996.
Romario had scored three goals against Australia, in the 1988 Fair. While Gerson Canhotinha scored against Chinese Taipei in the 1960 Games.
However, Richarlison is the first to score three goals for Brazil in a debut match at the Olympics for the Brazilians.
