Richarlison On Target In Brazil Win

Richarlison staked his claim for a starting spot in his home Copa America by opening the scoring and setting up the second goal in Brazil's 2-0 friendly win against Qatar in Brasilia.

The Everton forward was named in Tite's XI for the game on Thursday night and took just 17 minutes to find the back of the net against the Asian Cup champions when he was picked out by Dani Alves and rose high to head past Saad Al Sheeb for his fourth international goal in nine caps.

Brazil were given a scare shortly afterwards when Neymar was forced off with a leg injury, but the game was made safe midway through the first half as Richarlison combined with Gabriel Jesus for the Manchester City striker to slot home.
