Richarlison Makes Brazil Bow

Richarlison is now a Brazil international after earning his first cap for the five-time world champions in a 2-0 friendly victory over USA in New Jersey.

The Everton forward came on as a 75th-minute substitute at the MetLife Stadium on Saturday morning as the Selecao triumphed courtesy of Roberto Firmino's 11th-minute opener and a Neymar penalty.

Blues defender Antonee Robinson - on loan at Wigan Athletic in the Championship for the 2018-19 season - made his third appearance for USA, playing the full match at left-back.

Richarlison has previously played for Brazil's Under-20s and received a call-up to the senior squad by manager Tite after his impressive start with Everton.

Having joined from Watford in the summer, the 21-year-old hit both goals on his competitive Blues debut in the 2-2 draw at Wolves on the opening day of the season, before netting again in the 2-1 victory over Southampton.

Brazil are back in friendly action on Wednesday when they face El Salvador in Maryland, while USA take on Mexico in Nashville.
