Richarlison’s bicycle kick against Serbia has been declared the goal of the tournament in the recently concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Richarlison had his back to goal as he shot the ball into the air near the penalty spot with one touch, then spun and leapt off the ground to deliver a spectacular acrobatic kick into the net.
It helped Brazil win 2-0 against Serbia in the group stage.
Richarlison’s effort beat Cody Gakpo’s effort against Ecuador, Enzo Fernandez’s goal against Mexico, Luis Chavez’s superb free-kick against Saudi Arabia and Kylian Mbappé’s stunning goal against Poland.
With this performance, Richarlison tied Maxi Rodriguez, Diego Forlan, James Rodriguez and Benjamin Pavard.
First awarded in 2006, the Goal of the Tournament award is determined by a public opinion poll.
