Richarlison double fires Brazil to win over El Salvador

14 September 2018

Richarlison, whose £40million summer move from Watford to Everton raised eyebrows over the price tag, has started the season well with three goals in as many matches for his new club in addition to his double on global duty.

Neymar criticised referee Jair Marrufo after receiving what he felt was an "unnecessary" booking for simulation during his side's 5-0 win over El Salvador.

The Brazilian has become a key figure for his new club after joining from Watford in the summer.

A double from Richarlison on his first global start helped Brazil to a 5-0 win over El Salvador in Maryland Tuesday.

In an interview with AS, the 21-year-old gave an insight into his humble upbringing in Brazil, and said: "I had to live in my uncle's house because it was closer to where I trained and I didn't have money for the bus".

Richarlison got his name on the scoresheet 13 minutes later when he curled a spectacular shot into the top corner from 15 meters out and on the half hour mark Brazil made it 3-0, Phillipe Coutinho firing home from the edge of the box after Neymar laid the ball into his path. Before scoring, he also won the penalty which allowed Neymar to open the scoring in the fourth minute of the game. "I have to work hard at my club to come back more often".

Richarlison swept home his second in the 50th minute, with Marquinhos heading home a fifth late on.

Brazil next plays Saudi Arabia on October 12 ahead of facing Argentina on October 16, in friendly matches. "I think it has to end", he said, according to Globo Esporte.

His fast start has earned him a maiden call-up to the Brazil national side for friendlies in the United States - against the hosts on Friday and El Salvador four days later.
