While he was on the lawn this Thursday and scored a hat-trick against Germany in Brazil’s first match at the Olympic football tournament (4-2), Richarlison suffered the chambering of Parisians Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria, who referred to the Copa América final won by Argentina.
Despite the time difference and the thousands of kilometers separating Japan from where Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria spend their holidays together, nothing prevents Parisians from keeping an eye on the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The two Argentinian players followed Argentina’s defeat against Australia (0-2) and also heard about Richarlison’s hat-trick, a major player in Brazil’s victory against Germany (4-2).

Better than that, Paredes and Di Maria had fun chambering the Brazilian striker, responding to a post posted on Instagram by Argentine television channel TyC Sports. The latter praised the performance of Richarlison, author of three goals in thirty minutes against the Germans. The two Parisians then referred to the Copa América final lost by Brazil (0-1) on July 11.
Richarlison had a difficult Copa América final
“And in the final?” Paredes replied first, before obtaining the approval of Di Maria and even Giovani Lo Celso, a former Parisian today at Tottenham. In the Copa America, Richarlison scored one goal in seven games. During the final, the Everton striker had played the 90 minutes of the meeting and had not been there, stumbling in particular on Emiliano Martinez in the second half.
Richarlison had mostly thought to equalize early in the second half and celebrated his goal in a vacuum before realizing he was offside. With his hat-trick against Germany on Thursday, the Brazilian striker was the ideal target for Paredes and Di Maria.
