Shortly after Everton’s new £50 million signing Richarlison scored a brace on his debut against Wolves on Saturday afternoon, the Brazilian made a young fan’s day, if not year.
The 21-year-old, who became the first Everton player to score a brace on his Premier League debut since Jo in 2009, became an instant hero when he managed to convert both of his chances in the 2-2 draw.
Even after the final whistle, Richarlison won the hearts of many when he gave away his match shirt to a fan in the crowd.
Thaynan Leite Correa was the lucky 9-year-old who now owns the former Watford player’s debut shirt. The youngster couldn’t contain his emotions seconds later, breaking down in tears of joy.
What a moment.
It was a great day for Richarlison, who many previously doubted after Everton spent a small fortune on the striker. He only scored five goals in 41 games for the Hornets last season.
Watford striker Andre Gray has taken to Twitter to applaud Everton attacker Richarlison after a video emerged on social media of the Brazilian making a young fan’s day by giving him his shirt after full time.
