Video: Richarlison leaves whole Brazil squad cheering after what he's just done in World Cup training
The striker has been struggling with his fitness for Spurs lately, but it did not ever seem likely he would be left out of Tite’s plans.
There is not much turnaround time before the tournament gets underway but Richarlison has already been filmed in Brazil training.
The whole squad did a challenge where they had to control a ball dropped out of the sky by a drone from increasing heights.
Richarlison nails challenge in Brazil training
Richarlison managed to control the ball from a height of 30 metres, showcasing an impressive touch despite not playing much football lately.
He was only beaten by Brazil talisman Neymar, who managed to pluck the ball out of the sky from a height of 35 metres.
You can see the full video below, as Brazil tune up to try and win the World Cup for their country for the first time since 2002.
This is an opportunity for this squad to write themselves into the history books in a World Cup which is like no other.
Richarlison has not won a major trophy in English football but what a huge achievement it would be to come back to Spurs as a World Cup winner.
Brazil have been drawn in Group G, alongside Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon, with their first game kicking off on Thursday 24 November.
