[골닷컴] Reporter Kim Dong-ho = Brazilian legend Ronaldo expressed admiration for Richarlison’s goal against Korea.
South Korea and Brazil played the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup at Stadium 974 in Doha, Qatar at 4:00 am (Korea time) on the 6th. The game ended with Brazil winning 4-1. Vinicius, Neymar, Richarlisson, and Paqueta scored in the game that day, and Baek Seung-ho managed to score in Korea.
In particular, the sight of Richarlison’s wedge goal in the 29th minute of the first half was artistic. Richarlison relieved the pressure of the Korean defense with his individual skills and gave the ball to Paqueta. Paqueta gave the ball again to Thiago Silva, who poked it in the direction of the probing Richarlison. Richarlison finished this calmly, not missing a one-on-one opportunity.
Three players exchanged passes like a computer game and split the net. With this in mind, Ronaldo, who led Brazil to the championship in the Korea-Japan 2022 World Cup and won the top scorer, could not help but marvel at the stadium. Ronaldo is known to have set up the Korean War on the spot.
According to HITC, Ronaldo said: “It was a very good goal. Brazil now have three more games to play to win the World Cup. Just as I inspired Brazil, it is now the turn of the athletes to inspire the people. Richarlison is the pride of Brazil.”
“It was a beautiful goal. Richarlison, who plays as a center forward, is a striker of a type we have not seen before. I hope to score more goals and bring home the sixth trophy.”
Richarlison is seen as one of the players who solved the number 9 striker problem that Brazil have been struggling with for a long time. He scored his third goal in this World Cup and is tied for second in the scoring standings. If Richarlison scores more goals and wins the championship trophy as Ronaldo wants, he is expected to become a legendary Brazilian striker following in Ronaldo’s footsteps.
