Brazil was at the party on Friday night. The Seleção swept Bolivia 5-1 in Belem in the qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. Neymar entered the history of Brazilian football a little further by becoming, with his double, the top scorer in the history of the Brazilian selection, thus surpassing the illustrious King Pelé.
An unusual scene also marked this meeting. Richarlison, Tottenham's Brazilian striker, who started at kick-off, collapsed on the sidelines after being replaced by Matheus Cunha in the 71st minute of play.
The Spurs player, in great difficulty since the start of the Premier League season, was again very imprecise against the Bolivian nets, especially on this action.
The Tottenham striker, in the midst of a crisis of confidence, has scored only one goal since the start of this 2023-24 season, in five matches played, it was in the English League Cup. Tottenham were eliminated by Fulham on penalties.
