Roberto Firmino who netted against the USA in New Jersey was in high spirits in training

Richarlison, whose £40million summer move from Watford to Everton raised eyebrows over the price tag, has started the season well with three goals in as many matches for his new club in addition to his double on worldwide duty.

His early season form at his new club helped him earn his first ever senior call-up to the Brazilian team.

Richarlison scored either side of halftime as Brazil romped to a 5-0 victory over El Salvador in their global friendly on Tuesday.

Richarlison got his first two global goals, and Phillipe Coutinho also scored for Brazil.

Phillipe Coutinho made it 3-0 before the Everton attacker grabbed another after the break, pouncing onto a loose ball to rifle home a low shot from inside the box. "I have to work hard at my club to come back more often".


Neymar did convert a fourth-minute penalty to put Brazil in front against El Salvador following a foul on debutant Richarlison, who went on to score twice in the rout.

Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina made a fine diving save to tip an Exequiel Palacios shot over the bar after six minutes while his Argentine counterpart Franco Armani was the busier of the two in the second half but neither side looked like breaking the deadlock.

Argentina, who were without Lionel Messi, fielded a young side and they were unable to make much headway against the more experienced Colombians. "I think it has to end", he said, according to Globo Esporte.

Philippe Coutinho and Marquinhos also found the net as Brazil coasted to victory at FedEx Field, following on from a 2-0 triumph over the United States on Friday.
