Everton attacker Richarlison saw his early form for the club rewarded by a first senior call-up to the Brazil national side this September international break.

Having come in for both praise and criticism following the fee Everton paid Watford for him, a deal potentially rising to £50million all in, the 21-year-old has already taken steps towards paying that money off as he’s hit three goals in three appearances for us so far in the season of 2018/19 and he took a further step by not only receiving the call-up but making his Brazilian debut as a substitute in their game against the United States of America on Saturday.
Best young player in the Prem.

So Brazil’s number 9 plays for us…..decent that. Played alongside another forward called Everton too confusingly enough.

Be worth way more than £40m now. Ruined the transfer window.????

Replacing Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino in the 75th minute of the game, it wasn’t lost on many that he was wearing the iconic No 9 shirt and whilst he has plenty of work left to do, it’s only increased the expectations surrounding the kind of future this lad can have in the game.
