World Cup: Neville reacts to Richarlison being picked over Jesus in Brazil attack
Gary Neville, a former player for Manchester United, praised Richarlison of Tottenham.
He claims that when playing international football, Richardson really shines.
The Brazilian transferred from Everton to Antonio Conte's team for a hefty €58 million fee during the summer transfer window.
Despite participating in 10 Premier League games this season and contributing just two assists, the Brazilian forward has had trouble making an impact at the club.
Coach Tite chose him despite his lack of goals for Tottenham to be the focal point of the Brazilian offense.
And Richarlison notched two goals—a brilliant brace that included a mind-blowing scissor kick—against Serbia.
After watching the striker's second-half acrobatic goal against Serbia, Neville declared that the Tottenham player was more suited to play for his country than for a club.
"In England, we are so used to Jesus," Neville said to HITC. We pick Jesus, then you see this from Richardson. He has been outstanding for Brazil.
“Jesus played in the last tournament and didn’t score in those five games, and the coach has carried that over. That is world-class [against Serbia].”
