Brazil is synonymous with soccer. The nation has won five World Cups, tied with Italy for the most. It has all-time greats like Pelé, Ronaldo, and Garrincha in its history. And, it’s brought a strong team to the 2022 FIFA World Cup that entered the tournament as favorites.

Brazil is known for the flair that they play with, too, channeling the dance, the samba, that was developed there. The sport is even referred to as “Jogo Bonito” the beautiful game, in the South American country.

In their World Cup opener against Serbia, they showed why they are so beloved from around the world.

Richarlison scored a phenomenal goal for Brazil that will be remembered for a long time

With Brazil up 1-0 on a Richarlison tap-in, the Everton man converted a ridiculous goal where he popped up the ball to himself and scissor-kicked it in.

My goodness, what a goal. That first touch was not intended to be popped up like that. But, it makes the goal much cooler. It put his nation up 2-0, and they cruised home to a win by the same score.

The Soccer world went nuts

The reactions to the goal were immediate.

Brazil always embodies the beautiful game.

Brazil will be back in action Monday against Switzerland.
