Richarlison Scores In Brazil Victory

Richarlison came off the bench to score for Brazil in a 4-0 win over Chile at the Maracanã stadium on Thursday night.

The 24-year-old replaced Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli as a 74th-minute substitute and struck his goal in impressive fashion in second half-stoppage time.

Collecting the ball on the right side of the penalty area, Richarlison cut back on to his left foot to beat his marker before curling a low shot into the corner of the net.

It was the Everton forward's 11th goal on his 33rd senior appearance for Brazil.

Vinícius Júnior, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho were also on the scoresheet for Tite's side, who have already secured their place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Elsewhere, Nathan Patterson started for Scotland as Steve Clarke’s side were controversially held to a 1-1 draw with Poland at Hampden Park.

Operating as a right wing-back in a 3-4-3 formation, Patterson caught the eye with an energetic display before being withdrawn from the action on 67 minutes with the deadlock still intact.

Kieran Tierney notched his first senior international goal for the opener a minute later - and that strike looked as though it would be enough to extend Scotland’s six-game winning streak.

However, in the final minute of the contest, Poland were awarded a penalty when Krzysztof Piątek went down inside the area, with replays suggesting there was minimal contact.

The Fiorentina striker brushed himself down to convert the spot-kick himself to earn a draw - the sixth in the past 11 meetings between the two nations.

This international friendly was organised in partnership with UNICEF in support of the charity’s humanitarian response to the invasion of Ukraine.

Scotland were due to play Ukraine in a World Cup play-off semi-final this month, but, due to the ongoing conflict, the fixture was postponed and a new date has yet to be confirmed.

Elsewhere, Wales defeated Austria 2-1 in Cardiff, meaning they will play either Scotland or Ukraine for a place in the 2022 World Cup.
