Richarlison fears missing out on World Cup after injury during Everton match

Brazil and Tottenham number nine Richarlison was in tears as he left the stadium on crutches last night.

Speaking after Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Everton the forward told ESPN Brazil his World Cup participation lies in the balance.

“It’s kind of hard to say because it’s so close to realising my dream [playing at the World Cup]. I’ve already suffered an injury similar to this, I hope it can heal as soon as possible, or less. I was stopped about two months at Everton.

“I know it’s hard to talk right now, but let’s see, I’ll recover. Monday. I have tests to do, but even walking hurts. Let’s wait.“

Antonio Conte hinted it might not be good news speaking to 5 live after the game.

“The player was worried and disappointed. He felt something in his calf. I hope it’s nothing serious but we are worried.”
