Richarlison makes history with first-half hat-trick against Germany

Richarlison makes history with first-half hat-trick against Germany

 

Brazil vs Germany

Brazil raced into a 3-0 lead in the first half of their Olympic Games opener against Germany. The fixture marked the first time that the two sides had met competitively since the 2014 World Cup, when Germany demolished the tournament hosts 7-1.

However, six years later, Brazil are getting their own back, trouncing Germany in Tokyo. The chief architect in this has been Everton’s Richarlison, who netted three times in the opening half-hour for the Selecao.

The 24-year-old has had a non-stop summer, playing in seven of Brazil’s eight Copa America games, before joining up with the Olympic side ahead of their Group D opener.

After scoring once in his seven Copa America appearances, Richarlison is now making up for his past profligacy, and has made himself a prime contender for the golden boot already.

Richarlison sets record

In netting his hat-trick, Richarlison inadvertently set a new record at the Olympic Games.

His three goals made him the first Premier League player to ever net a hat-trick at the event. Of course, it should be noted that often Premier League players don’t travel to the Olympics, due to the event’s overlap with other tournaments (such as the European Championships and the Copa America), but it remains a fantastic achievement for the Everton man.

Richarlison was in somewhat indifferent form for Everton last season, netting seven goals but often cutting a frustrated figure in Carlo Ancelotti’s side. However, if his pre-season form is anything to go by, then the attacker may be ready to take the Premier League by storm this campaign.
