Everton forward Richarlison has been handed a call-up to the Brazil squad for their upcoming friendlies against the United States and El Salvador.
The 21-year-old joined Everton from Watford in the summer transfer window, and has scored three times in his first three Premier League appearances for the Toffees.
That said, the attacker was sent off against Bournemouth at the weekend, and is now facing an enforced spell on the sidelines.
Richarlison has made 10 appearances for Brazil’s Under-20 outfit, but has never appeared for the senior team.
An injury to Fluminense attacker Pedro has opened the door for Richarlison, and the 5ft 10in ace will now be looking to potentially cement a spot in the squad.
The Everton fans have been offering their views on the call-up on social media, with many taking the chance to congratulate Richarlison.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Everton supporters can be seen below:
