UPDATE: Scrap all that, Richarlison is out with the mumps. No word on his return, but he’s definitely out for the rest of the competition.
O atacante Richarlison foi diagnosticado com caxumba e está fora do jogo de hoje contra o Paraguai— Ciro Campos (@ciro_campos) June 27, 2019
Brazil had finished top of Group A and play Paraguay who were third in Group B, having held Argentina and Qatar to tepid draws. Everton forward Richarlison was dropped from the Seleção’s third game, a 5-0 romp over Peru, amid injury concerns, the player later revealed that manager Tite had spoken to him about trying out a different forward combination which seemed to pay off.
We’ll know later today if Richarlison is able to regain his spot in the starting lineup now that we’re in the knockout phases, or if the manager will continue to use Gabriel Jesus and Everton (the player!) out wide.
