Richarlison Delighted With Neymar Praise
Richarlison;s early season form for Everton has drawn lots of attention, but so too has his form for Brazil. The Everton man replaced Neymar, who picked up an injury after 7 minutes, during the friendly against Cameroon on Tuesday.
Richarlison scored the only goal, a bullet header from a Willian corner in first half stoppage time, to snatch a 1-0 victory for the Seleção. Neymar singled Richarlison out for praise, something that hasn’t escaped the Everton man’s notice.
“It means a lot because Neymar is one of the best players in the world,” Richarlison told evertonfc.com. “He makes it easy to play with him because he is so good.
“No matter where he is in the pitch, he will always find you if you get in good positions. You feel he will create chances for you in front of goal. In this team, you know opportunities will arrive and, hopefully, the goals are coming.
“I am trying to do what the Brazil coach asks from me. I want to continue like this with Brazil and contribute every time I play.”
