Richarlison wipes away emotions after an emotional encounter with Brazil icon Ronaldo, Richarlison’s emotional breakdown in front of Brazilian legend Ronaldo as his team advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals with a 4-1 victory has been captured on film.

After the Tottenham Hotspur striker’s standout performance in Brazil, which knocked South Korea out of the World Cup, the two became acquainted.

The third goal was scored by the Brazilian No. 9 as his team rapidly built a 4-0 lead at Stadium 974 in Doha before the halftime siren.

Brazil established itself as the team to beat to win this year’s World Cup in Qatar, despite South Korea scoring a consolation goal through Paik Seung-ho. Ronaldo Nazario watched alongside fellow great Cafu, Roberto Carlos, and Rivaldo.

Video after the game showed the Brazilian legend seemingly surprising Richarlison, who was visibly moved when he entered a room and was greeted by an idol.

The Brazilian icon then interviewed the contemporary “R9” and taught him how to perform Richarlison’s well-known pigeon dance.

Brazil performed a variety of dance techniques throughout the match as the goals flowed in, with manager Tite even joining in by imitating Richarlison’s pigeon celebration.

At the halftime break, Roy Keane, based in Qatar and works for ITV, vehemently criticized the Brazil team for their “disrespectful” dancing.

Ronaldo ranks third among all-time Brazilian goal scorers with an astounding 62 goals in just 99 outings.

The former star of Barcelona, Real Madrid, and AC Milan is only outdone by Neymar, who increased his total after returning from injury, and Pele, to whom the Brazil team paid tribute at the game’s conclusion as he fights illness.

Ronaldo won the golden boot after scoring eight goals, including twice in a 2-0 victory over Germany in the final. He was also a member of Brazil’s 2002 World Cup-winning team in South Korea and Japan.

Son missed three games for the Spurs before the competition due to an eye socket fracture that required surgery.

He recognized there were significant chances of further injury with any impact to his face, even though he wore a protective face mask for all of South Korea’s matches.

His Spurs colleague Richarlison has had a much more fruitful tournament, scoring twice against Serbia in Brazil’s opening Group G match, including a fantastic acrobatic finish that was hailed as a goal of the tournament contender.

With his back to the goal in the area, the striker received the ball, flipped it up in the air with his first touch, turned, and volleyed powerfully to double Brazil’s lead. It was the second period of play.

Brazil advanced to the quarterfinals in Qatar thanks to their easy victory, where they will play Croatia on Friday.

Croatia’s victory earlier in the day required more effort on their part. They had to come from behind after Daizen Maeda gave Japan the lead in the first half.
