The Everton forward fired in two late goals to secure the 3-1 victory over Saudi Arabia 3-1 which meant the South Americans finished top of Group D.
Brazil had been pegged back to 1-1 when Abdulelah Al-Amri cancelled out Matheus Cunha's opener at the Saitama Stadium and were in danger of being held to a draw.
Richarlison, however, added to the hat-trick he scored in his country's opening game when he scored with 14 minutes to go before adding an insurance goal in injury time.
Elsewhere, some notable names in world football fell by the wayside as Germany, France and Argentina were all eliminated.
Brazil will face Egypt next in the last eight on Saturday.

Brazil has just beaten Saudi Arabia 3-1 with Richarlison bagging a late pair. Good header and a simple tap in at the far post.
Between his two goals he got another fine finish but it was rightly ruled out for the crosser of the ball being offside.
In the same group Ivory Coast drew with Germany which eliminated the latter from the quarter finals, qualifying the Africans.
Brazil's quarter final opponents will be decided later today in a very tight group. Depending how results go, it will be the second place team between Spain, Argentina or Australia.

Before the Olympics he said:
* He wanted the iconical #10 Brazilian shirt. He got it.
* He wanted to play as the central forward. He is (NOT always the case when playing for the Brazil national team).
* He wanted to be the Games top goalscorer. He's going the right way about achieving that. Hat-trick in the first 30 minutes of the opening game v Germany no less – a brace today.
I'm only following Brazil's games and glancing at the other results, so I don't know if there is anybody else banging them in and challenging him for the top scorer title.

A Korean guy scored a hat-trick today but not sure how he's done previously and I think Gignac from France might be on 4.

Spain the group leaders are beating Argentina 1-0. Australia who were in 2nd are losing by the same score to Egypt which has catapulted Egypt into the qualifying 2nd place.
Australia had beaten Argentina 2-0 previously and lost to Spain. Egypt only had one point before today with a draw v Spain.

Didnt really work last season. Does this mean he will let one of them go for a huge price?

Lots of the usual crap on such sites, having to click loads of times and close multiple windows, but once that's done with for the most part streams are stable, uninterrupted and HD quality.
Love the Olympics, me. Watching and getting well involved with sports I'd normally have no interest in and hearing amazing stories of the sacrifices and hardships athletes pass through to realise their dreams.

I don't mind some of it, but not the Horse Dancing.

Now please, dude, stay healthy.

Also some rumours that Everton are in for Gabriel "Gabigol" Barbosa of Flamengo, but not from the most reputable of websites. Probably the agent placing a story and trying to stir up interest to make himself a few quid.

Didn't really do himself justice in Italy or Portugal but probably moved to Europe too soon. Been on fire in Brazil since then. Presume Flamengo would want top dollar unless they're desperate for money. Jay Wood will have the lowdown - he's been hoping we'd sign the guy for ages now.

Somewhat better in the second half, particularly after Daniel Arzani was introduced - tricky little skilful player maybe Everton should take a look at him.
Unfortunately, I have to say that Egypt well-deserved the win!

Mathematically if Richy can score 5 goals in two games for Brazil, and he can keep that up for Everton for 38 games, he would end up with 95 goals. WOW !!! That should really help our goal average and keep the fans happy.Well some of them.
24 Posted 31/07/2021 at 12:01:38
Richy is playing very well. Good movement, positioning and close control playing the central forward which for Brazil means being very fluid rather than cemented in one spot.
Earlier, Ivory Coast missed a glorious opportunity to beat Spain, taking the lead 2-1 in injury time of normal time with just 3 minutes on the clock left.
The Spanish equaliser with a minute to go was a shocker by the IC defence. An object lesson in why you should never let the ball bounce as a defender, least of all centrally on the edge of your own 6 yard box.
Spain romped home 5-2 in extra time.
