Riotous Richarlison rips Germany apart

Richarlison got Brazil’s gold medal defence off to the perfect start at ‘Tokyo 2020’, with his 30-minute hat-trick before HT proving the catalyst towards a 4-2win over 2016 silver medallists Germany in Yokohama.

In a rerun of the 2002 World Cup final held at the same stadium, Brazil started as the brighter of the two sides. The Seleção went ahead after just seven minutes, when Antony split the German defence to find Richarlison, whose initial shot was saved by Florian Müller. However, the Everton striker had no trouble slotting home the rebound, securing a dream start to life as an Olympian.

Matheus Cunha and Claudinho also saw efforts saved by Müller, before Richarlison powered in a header from Bruno’s cross to grab Brazil’s second. Moments later, the 24-year-old curled a lovely effort past Müller to complete his astonishing half-hour treble, and record the very first Olympic hat-trick scored by a Premier League player.

Referee Ivan Barton from El Salvador gave Brazil a controversial penalty for handball in stoppage time at the end of the first period, as Felix Uduokhai was adjudged to have raised his arm to deflect the ball. Cunha stepped up to make his mark, but Müller pulled off a brilliant diving save to his right, for a small degree of German consolation in a nightmare first half for Stefan Kuntz’s side. 

No doubt heavily admonished by Kuntz during the break, Germany restarted with newfound purpose, and pulled a goal back in the 57th minute, when a speculative shot from Nadiem Amiri crept past Brazilian goalkeeper Santos. Despite Max Arnold being sent off for a second bookable offence just six minutes later, Germany kept pressing forward, and a further twist always seemed inevitable.

With six minutes to go, the Germans were duly rewarded for their belated efforts, when David Raum crossed for substitute Ragnar Ache to head home, but Brazil hung on to claim the three points, after making it 4-2 at the death through Paulinho. Matchday two sees them face the Ivory Coast, and while they do so as favourites, Brazil will undoubtedly review the second half of this Olympic opener with much scrutiny in the coming days.
