Watch Richarlison score outrageous overhead kick for Brazil against Serbia at World Cup as fans all say the same thing

RICHARLISON scored a SENSATIONAL overhead kick for Brazil against Serbia in the World Cup favourites’ opening game in Qatar.

The Tottenham forward, 25, got off the mark shortly after an hour on Thursday evening, reacting first from a Vinicius Jr shot to lash home the rebound.

But 11 minutes later he doubled his tally for the evening in breathtaking fashion.

Vinicius crossed into the penalty area and Richarlison did the rest, teeing himself up before acrobatically swivelling to lash an outrageous effort into the corner beyond Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

And football fans feel it may have already won the Puskas award for goal of the year.

Reacting on social media, one person said: “NOW THAT IS ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL FROM RICHARLISON…”
