Brazil Striker Richarlison Forgets Grandmother’s Name Whilst Dedicating Copa America Goal to Her

Brazil Striker Richarlison Forgets Grandmother’s Name Whilst Dedicating Copa America Goal to Her

Everton striker Richarlison dedicated his goal in last night’s Copa America final to his grandmother – only to forget his poor granny’s name in post-match interviews.

The £50 million ex-Watford man came on in the second-half of Brazil’s 3-1 victory over Peru in Rio de Janeiro, and proceeded to score the crucial third goal which clinched the Seleção’s first senior trophy since 2007.

For a South American, winning the Copa America is a pretty big deal, and winning any sort of silverware is pretty exciting for any Brazilian fan, and Richarlison was no different.

After collecting his winner’s medal, the 22-year-old thoughtfully wanted to thank the people who helped him reach such magnificent heights – but we’re not entirely sure his grandmother will be pleased today:

Don’t worry, Rio – you’ve still got a few years to research all those tricky names before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar!

How highly do you rate Richarlison?
