Others labeled Richarlison ‘unreal’ and suggested ‘you won’t see a better goal than that’, while many also commented on the quality of the Serbian squad which made the goal even more impressive.

BBC pundits joined the fans in praising the striker after the match, although Alan Shearer claimed to be setting up Richarlison’s more poaching first goal.

He said: ‘The positioning to score those small goals is just as satisfying to me as the incredible second goal he scored. It looks very simple but it is not. It’s very, very good striker play.’
