Everton winger Richarlison has finally had his dream come true as he has been drafted into the Brazilian national due to Pedro’s injury.Richarlison, 21, has always been keen on playing for his national team but was gutted when he missed out from the recent squad list.When the national team was announced on the day before the Blues took on Southampton, he was not in the squad and his disappointment was palpable in interviews.However, an injury to Pedro over the weekend has now opened the door for the 21-year-old, and he has been officially named to the team that will take on the United States national team (USMNT) on Friday 7th September and El Salvador four days later.Richarlison, do Everton, está convocado e vai assumir a vaga de Pedro, desconvocado por lesão.

I watched with great anticipation, but unfortunately, it was not this time.“I can not say why [I have not been called], there are 24 names and it’s difficult for the coach to choose, I’ll keep working to be on the next list.“I feel more prepared, I already know the rhythm and style of the Premier League, which helps me on the way to the achievements. I want to be the top scorer of the league, take Everton back to the Champions League and therefore reach the Brazilian national team.”Richarlison is suspended for the Blues next three games after being sent off over the weekend.
