Richarlison recreates Lionel Messi's famous El Clasico celebration vs Lincoln

Richarlison took his shirt off to celebrate vs Lincoln

Everton survived a huge scare against Lincoln to progress to the Carabao Cup third round.

The Toffees endured a nightmare start as they were 1-0 down inside 20 seconds.

But Lucas Digne's superb 30-yard free-kick restored parity, before Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty just before the hour mark gave them the lead.

The League One side came roaring back; Bruno Andrade levelling the scores once again with a volley that nearly took the net off.

Everton's quality told in the end as they won 4-2 thanks to two late goals.

Alex Iwobi nodded in with 10 minutes remaining before Richarlison made sure Everton would be heading to the third round late on.

It's been a tough start to the season for the Brazilian forward.

He's failed to find the back of the net in each of Everton's opening three Premier League games.

Richarlison heads in his goal vs Lincoln

And he was clearly delighted to end his mini-goal drought on Wednesday night.

Although the manner of his celebration has raised eyebrows.

Shortly after scoring Everton's fourth, Richarlison channeled his inner Lionel Messi by taking his shirt off and showing it to the crowd.

View his celebration below:

We're not sure that was overly necessary, Richarlison.

Of course, Messi produced the celebration after scoring a last minute winner against Real Madrid back in 2017.


The celebration seemed appropriate given it was such an important goal and against their fierce rivals.

Richarlison, however, recreated the celebration against Lincoln in the Carabao Cup second round.

And he didn't even manage to show his shirt the right way round.

That's not the very first time that someone has decided to copy Messi's celebration.

In a Clasico later on in 2017, Cristiano Ronaldo decided he was going to get some revenge by taking his shirt off after scoring.


It's fair to say he had more reason to celebrate like that than Richarlison did.
