Video: Tottenham star Richarlison scores stunning goal in training
Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison has staked his claim for a chance to lead the line for Brazil at World Cup, with Globo posting a video on Twitter showing the forward scoring a stunning scissor kick goal in training.
Richarlison looks to be in with a very good shout of getting the nod from Tite in Qatar. He made several appearances through the middle in the months leading up to the tournament.
And he has been handed the number nine shirt. That is perhaps an indicator that he is going to be the man to start the tournament up front for Selecao.
Richarlison scores stunning goal in training
He is certainly doing his chances no harm at all in training, it seems.
Brazilian outlet Globo posted a video on social media showing Richarlison scoring an amazing volley in training. The 25-year-old finds the roof of the net with the thunderous attempt. And the goalkeeper is left with absolutely no chance.
Here is a look at the clip…

The scary thing for Richarlison, and Brazil’s rivals, is the amount of attacking depth available to Tite in Qatar.
Gabriel Jesus has shown for Arsenal how good he can be as the fulcrum of the side – even if he has not exactly been prolific. Meanwhile, Pedro is in the squad after scoring 29 goals for Flamengo this year.
And Brazil have a raft of other forwards, several of whom would probably be able to thrive if needed up front given the ability around them.
You would imagine that Richarlison will be the man who gets the initial chance. And that is a huge opportunity for the Tottenham star.
Brazil are definitely in the mix to lift the World Cup for a sixth time.
Certainly, a few more goals like the one Richarlison scored in training, and it will be hard to look past Tite’s side.
