A fan had some explaining to do to his wife after he took off his jersey and celebrated Richarlison’s acrobatic kick in Brazil’s World Cup opening win.
Veterinarian Clovis Carvalho, 34, was shown on television without his Brazilian jersey as he jumped for joy as Richarlison scored what many consider to be the goal of the tournament against Serbia last Thursday at Lusail Stadium.
“A goal like that was worth going crazy over,” Carvalho told Brazil’s G1 news outlet of the goal that sealed the 2-0 win.

Fernanda and Clovis have been living in Qatar for four years. The Brazilian natives have attended their national team’s first two World Cup matches, both victories
Richarlison’s volley kicks are regarded by many as the goal of the World Cup so far
Carvalho’s appearance immediately became a viral moment with friends and family back home in Brazil, but drew scolding from his architect wife, Fernanda Tonin, 28, who was seen on television gesturing to him with her hands.
“When I saw that he had taken his shirt off to celebrate the goal, I immediately asked him to put it back on,” Tonin told Brazilian news outlet G1. “I don’t think even he realized what he had just done.”
The couple has been living in Qatar for four years and Tonin understood that Carvalho’s celebration may have been perceived as offensive.

“Taking your shirt off in the stadium can offend Arab women and men in the stadium,” she said. “We’ve always been highly respected here, so we always do our best to respect their culture as well.”
Carvalho said his celebration during the match may have been “taken in step” by Qatari fans, “but I really sinned by doing that!” It wasn’t a nice gesture.’
The couple also attended Brazil’s 1-0 victory over Switzerland in Stadium 974 on Monday.
All cameras will be on Carvalho as Brazil win its sixth World Cup title and first since 2002.
