Richarlison Named In Brazil Squad For Home Copa America

Everton forward Richarlison is included in the 23-man Brazil squad which will bid to win its home Copa America when the competition kicks off next month.

The 22-year-old, Everton's Young Player of the Season, was summoned for his international debut six weeks after transferring to Goodison Park from Watford last summer.

Richarlison scored twice on his first start for Brazil back in September – a 5-0 victory over El Salvador – and has established himself as a key figure in manager Tite's plans.

The attacker, who scored 13 Premier League goals in 2018-19, has accumulated eight caps and started his country's past three matches.


Brazil open their Copa America campaign against Bolivia in Sao Paulo on June 14. They play Venezuela in Salvador four days later and complete their group fixtures back in Sao Paulo against Peru on June 22.

The tournament reaches its climax with a final in capital Rio de Janeiro's iconic Maracana Stadium on July 7.

Brazil were last crowned South American champions in 2007, with Chile winning the two most recent editions in 2015 and 2016.
