Richarlison On Target In Brazil Win

Richarlison was on the scoresheet as Brazil made it two wins from two in World Cup qualifying with a 4-2 victory over Peru on Tuesday night.

The Everton forward played the full match in Lima and made it 2-2 with a low finish just past the hour mark after Peru had twice taken the lead. Neymar ensured Brazil took the points with a hat-trick, including two late strikes.

Richarlison's goal was his seventh from 21 international caps as Brazil went top of the South American qualifying table in their bid to reach the 2022 finals in Qatar.

James Rodriguez also played the full 90 minutes for Colombia in their 2-2 draw with Chile in Santiago.

Bournemouth's Jefferson Lerma put Colombia ahead after seven minutes when he took advantage of poor marking to steal in at the far post and head home a deep cross from the right.

A penalty from Arturo Vidal after 38 minutes and an opportunist goal from Alexis Sanchez three minutes before half-time then put Chile in the driving seat.

But Radamel Falcao came on the bench and was on hand in a packed penalty box in injury-time to clip a shot from Johan Mojica into the net and give Colombia a deserved share of the points.

Yerry Mina did not feature on Tuesday, with the Colombian FA confirming the Everton defender was left out as a precaution after feeling discomfort in his right thigh during a training session.

The next round of South American World Cup qualifying takes place from Nov 12-17, when Colombia host Uruguay and then travel to face Ecuador; while Brazil are at home to Venezuela before a visit to Uruguay.
