Domestic football has returned to Brazil after the World Cup, and on Saturday Santos moved up into third in the top flight with a 3-0 win over Chapecoense.

Following in the footsteps of Neymar, Santos have a new starlet striker, Gabriel, nicknamed Gabigol, and the 17-year-old future megastar was a star performer in the match.

Gabigol set up Rildo for the opener in the first half, and after the break the teenager got on the target himself.

After finding the target Gabigol paid homage to the classic movie ‘The Karate Kid’ with a quality wax on, wax off goal celebration which he finished off with a karate kick on the corner flag..
