Neymar landed in Belém applauded by hundreds of fans who were waiting for his arrival in front of the Brazilian team’s hotel. But it was Richarlison who stole the show and made the joy of dozens of children and teenagers who crowded the railing to try a record with the idols. The attacker may even be down at Tottenham. But he stayed at least 10 minutes in front of the fans. He distributed autographs and even recorded videos at the request of fans.

The national team is in the capital of Pará to make its debut in the World Cup Qualifiers and also under the command of Fernando Diniz. On Friday (8), at 21:30 (Brasília time), Brazil faces Bolivia in Mangueirão.

Richarlison joined the other players who play in Europe. When the van appeared on the hotel’s street, a good-humoured fan shouted: “Alisson, yummy! My mother is single”. But it was the Tottenham striker who stole the show minutes later.

While the rest of the teammates all went to the hotel’s interior, Richarlison went to the railing. He caused an uproar from children trying to see the idols up close. Many of them did the pigeon dance while the striker signed autographs.

There were signatures out of sight. As well as the little ones who left euphoric and vibrated as if it were a goal with the idol’s autograph. One of the fans even managed to get the attacker to record a video for his grandmother.

antony was cut

Earlier, the CBF reported that Antony was cut from the Brazilian national team, after new details of the accusation of aggression against his ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin were published by the UOL portal. Gabriel Jesus was called by Diniz to replace the striker. He was on a pre-list of athletes sent by the organization to FIFA. A trivela found that the episode required an emergency meeting between Fernando Diniz and the CBF board to define what position to take on the case.

In addition to Antony, striker Vini Jr and goalkeeper Bento were also cut from the national team. Both miss out on their debut in the Qualifiers due to muscle injuries. Raphinha, from Barcelona, ​​and Lucas Perri, from Botafogo, were called up as substitutes.
