Since scoring twice as Brazil defeated Serbia 2-0 at the World Cup, Richarlison has amassed three million Instagram followers.

On Thursday night, the Tottenham Hotspur striker assisted Tite’s team in securing a victory in Group H. Richarlison gave Brazil the lead soon after the hour mark after Vanja Milinkovic-Savic blocked Vinicius Jr.’s shot into his path following a cagey first half.

Eleven minutes later, Richarlison scored his second goal of the contest with an exquisite acrobatic attempt.

Richarlison initially struggled to control a floating outside-the-boot cross from Vinicius that was placed inside the box. The 25-year-old made a slight adjustment to his physique before leaping into the air and launching a beautiful volley.

It was the pinnacle of Joga Bonito. Richarlison’s social media profile is expanding at an astounding rate, and the strikes have propelled him onto the international stage.

Around 8 million people were following Richarlison at the beginning of the competition. According to his social media fans, this has increased to 11 million followers since getting his brace.

We’re not sure what else could demonstrate that the World Cup is the biggest stage in sports if that.

He told reporters at full-time saying: “Richarlison is fantastic. You can see how he controls the ball. In the second half, he created a lot of space. “He calmed down a bit, and then he was more accurate in his deliveries.”
