After joining for big money from Watford, Richarlison impressed in his first handful of Everton appearances and worked his way into the Brazilian national team.

Richarlison who joined Everton from Watford in a club record fee this summer scored a brace as the Selecao defeated El Salvador 5-0 in an worldwide friendly game in Maryland, the US on Tuesday night.

But speaking after the game, he revealed nearly never made it to the big stage.

Neymar has accused referee Jair Marrufo of a "lack of respect" following Brazil's 5-0 win over El Salvador. Neymar's corner kick in the 90th minute was headed in by Marquinhos.

Elsewhere, Argentina - who were without Barcelona forward Lionel Messi - drew 0-0 with Colombia in New Jersey.

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

"Richarlison does not look to the sides, he looks forward", he added.

Striker Marcus Rashford scored a second-half victor as a young and much-changed England avoided an unprecedented fourth successive defeat by beating Switzerland 1-0 in a friendly Tuesday.

Manager Gareth Southgate made a raft of substitutions after the breakthrough, including bringing on striker Harry Kane in the 61st minute despite having indicated that he would be rested.

In other friendlies on Tuesday night, Ecuador beat Guatemala 2-0 in Chicago, Venezuela overcame Panama 2-0 in Panama City, the USA defeated Mexico 1-0 in Nashville while Colombia and Argentina played out a goalless draw in New Jersey.

Switzerland had its chances in the first half, with Xherdan Shaqiri hitting the outside of the post from inside the box after seven minutes. Their best player was the goalkeeper, he made great saves.

After Mexico went down to 10 men in the 67th minute, the United States of America made the most of their advantage, scoring just five minutes later through Tyler Adams.

The win was a welcome one for the home side, who lost last week's friendly against Brazil, but another disappointment for Mexico as it has now lost three games in a row.
