Others labelled Richarlison ‘unreal’ and suggested ‘you won’t see a better goal than that’, as many also commented on the quality of Serbia’s side as making the goal even more impressive.

BBC pundits joined fans in heaping praise on the striker after the game, although Alan Shearer claimed to prepare Richarlison’s more poacher-esque first goal.

He said: ‘The positioning to pick up those scrappy little goals, to me that gives as much satisfaction as the incredible second goal that he scored. It looks very simple but its not. It’s very, very good centre forward play.’

The former England striker did reserve some praise for the volley, though, describing the technique on the shot as ‘incredible.’ 

Micah Richards added that Richarlison had ‘showed why he’s Brazil’s number nine.’  

The 2-0 win  for Tite’s side puts them top of Group G following Switzerland’s narrow win over Cameroon.

They will next be in action against the second-placed Swiss on Monday.
