Richarlison makes history

It took just 30 minutes for Richarlison to achieve his record-setting feat.

He broke the deadlock for Brazil against Germany inside seven minutes, before doubling that lead 22 minutes in.

On the half-hour mark, his hat-trick was completed as the South American nation ran riot against European opposition.

The Everton attacker is a senior international with Brazil, having made his debut for the Selecao back in September 2018.

He boasts an impressive strike rate for his country, with the target found on 10 occasions in 32 appearances.

Richarlison formed part of Brazil’s squad at this summer’s Copa America.

The defending champions finished as runners-up to Lionel Messi and Argentina.

It was during that tournament that his selection in an Olympic squad was confirmed.  

He is now chasing down gold medal glory, with a star-studded side that is fancied to go well getting off to the perfect start.
