Richarlison Fit To Report For Brazil

Richarlison will link up with Brazil’s international squad in London ahead of forthcoming matches against Uruguay and Cameroon.

The Everton forward left Stamford Bridge yesterday with a minor ankle issue having been withdrawn in the closing minutes of his team’s Premier League encounter with Chelsea.

His injury is not thought to be serious, however, with Richarlison set to be assessed by Brazil’s medical staff before potentially winning his fifth cap when Tite’s side face Uruguay at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Friday.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, meanwhile, is a doubt to join the Iceland party for matches against Belgium and Qatar in the next seven days.

Sigurdsson also picked up an ankle injury in Everton’s weekend game at Chelsea and was replaced by Phil Jagielka with 14 minutes remaining.

The midfielder will undergo further examination and assessment today.
