Richarlison Makes Everton Vow After Brazil Double

Richarlison vowed to return to Everton and keep working hard after marking his first start for Brazil with two goals in a 5-0 friendly win over El Salvador.

Three days after coming on as a substitute against USA to earn his maiden cap for the five-time World Cup champions, Richarlison was chosen to lead Brazil's attack by boss Tite for the clash in Maryland, USA.

And, just like his start with the Blues since joining in the summer which saw him net three goals in his first two games, the 21-year-old took little time to impress.

He was brought down inside the area with four minutes on the clock, enabling Neymar to put the Selecao ahead from the penalty spot.


Richarlison then got his name on the scoresheet 12 minutes later when he curled a spectacular shot into the top corner from 15 yards out. Phillipe Coutinho made it 3-0 before the Everton attacker grabbed another after the break, pouncing onto a loose ball to rifle home a low shot from inside the box.

Marquinhos got Brazil a fifth in the final minute when he headed home a corner from Neymar.

"I am delighted to get two goals and for the chance that coach Tite gave me," Richarlison said. "Now, we celebrate and then get back to my club and keep working hard."
