The Everton star dedicated his goal against Peru to his great-grandma.
However, when Richarlison was asked what his great-grandma’s name is, the Everton star said he forgot. He said:
I can’t remember! I’ve forgotten! I don’t know, it’s just so much emotion.
I can’t recall it. It’s time to celebrate now, but I’ll tell you if I remember.
