Brazil fans love what Leeds star Raphinha did overnight, after coming off the bench

Raphinha earned his second Brazil cap during a 0-0 draw with Colombia – and Selecao fans are loving what the Leeds man did during his cameo role.

Raphinha, 24, was introduced for the second time from the bench in the space of a few days – having changed the game for Brazil against Venezuela.

His two assists caught the eye in the 3-1 win, and it saw Tite hand him another chance – albeit, with some fans hoping the Leeds man would start.

While he could not provide the difference against Colombia, he was a constant danger from the right flank during his 30-minute display.

At one point, he completely turned Colombia and Elche left-back Johan Mojica inside out – so much so that Mojica just flopped to the deck.

Of course, this comes as no surprise to Leeds fans – who have watched him do just that he did to Mojica multiple times, Gary Cahill, for example.

What are Brazil fans saying about Leeds ace Raphinha?

Brazil’s form has been excellent over the last few months. Despite defeat to Argentina in the Copa America final, they sit top of World Cup qualifying.

While they did draw against Colombia, they have a total of 28 points from a possible 30. So, for Raphinha to come in and improve that, says everything.

The right-sided attacker has added venom to a Brazil attack that is already incredibly pungent – with Neymar, Richarlison, Roberto Firmino and more.

Brazil fans are getting increasingly excited by Leeds ace Raphinha, and the prospect of him representing their country at the 2022 World Cup.
