Tottenham duo Emerson Royal and Lucas Moura took the opportunity to mock their team-mate Richarlison during a recent two-on-two match on FIFA.
Richarlison, the former Everton forward, was playing alongside Brazilian internet personality Iran Ferreira.
However, when he conceded against Royal and Lucas, the duo celebrated by performing Richarlison’s well-known pigeon dance celebration.
The pigeon dance, which has become Richarlison’s customary celebration in recent years, was met with disapproval from former football player Roy Keane during the World Cup.
However, Royal and Lucas had no such qualms as they imitated the celebration to the disappointment of Richarlison.
The incident took place during a two-on-two match where both teams played as Tottenham, with Lucas and Royal scoring through talisman Harry Kane.
In a moment of lighthearted fun, Royal and Lucas were able to poke fun at their team-mate while enjoying a friendly game of FIFA.

Despite the mocking, the Brazilian trio undoubtedly share a strong bond on and off the pitch.
