Richarlison scored twice on his first start for Brazil
Remember that a few weeks ago when people were saying £50m for Richarlison was a lot of money? Starting to feel like a very long time ago, isn't it?
Since completing his move from Watford to Everton, Richarlison has been impressive. The 21-year-old scored twice on his debut in the 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers and then grabbed what proved to be the decisive goal on his home bow against Southampton a week later.
His early season form at his new club helped him earn his first ever senior call-up to the Brazilian team.
In the small hours of Wednesday morning, he marked his full debut for his country by scoring two more goals as they beat El Salvador 5-0 at FedExField in Maryland. Before scoring, he also won the penalty which allowed Neymar to open the scoring in the fourth minute of the game.
Richarlison curled home Brazil's second after 16 minutes before Philippe Coutinho added a third before half-time. Early in the second half, the Everton man added his second before Marquinhos headed home a fifth and final goal late on.

Richarlison had made his first appearance for Brazil as a substitute in the 2-0 win over the United States last week.
He will return to Everton this week but will miss their game with West Ham as he serves the final game of the suspension he was given following his red card at Bournemouth.
