  • Brazilian forward Richarlison scored an early contender for the best goal of this year’s World Cup.
  • He unleashed a stunning sideways scissor kick at the 73rd minute in Brazil’s game against Serbia.
  • With him also scoring at the 62-minute mark, Richarlison brought Brazil to a 2-0 finish.

Brazilian soccer player Richarlison scored an astonishing bicycle kick goal on Thursday during his national squad’s first match at this year’s World Cup in Doha.

Receiving a low cross from Vinicius Jr., Richarlison de Andrade — professionally known as Richarlison — deflected the ball mid-air with his left foot and spun to unleash a sideways scissor kick with his right, blasting the ball past Serbian goalkeeper Vanja Milinković-Savić and into the net.

The 73rd-minute goal brought Brazil’s score against Serbia to 2-0.

Brazil’s first goal of the day was also scored by the 25-year-old Richarlison.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward sent home a close-range finish at 62 minutes after Milinković-Savić saved a shot by Vinicius Jr, as Brazil finally broke through Serbia’s tough defense.

“It was a boyhood dream come true,” Richarlison told Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo, per Agence France-Presse. The striker said he had cried four weeks ago amid concerns he would miss the World Cup because of a calf injury.

Fellow Brazilian soccer star Fernandinho later tweeted a video of Richarlison performing a backflip on a trampoline. “The Pigeon has been practicing this goal for some time at home,” wrote Fernandinho, calling Richarlison by his nickname.
