The Untold Story Of Richarlison


This article will tell you about the career highlights of Brazilian footballer Richarlison

Richarlison de Andrade, commonly known as Richarlison, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a forward for the Premier League club Everton and the Brazil national team.

Born on May 10, 1997, in Nova Venécia, Brazil, Richarlison started his career in football at the age of nine when he joined América Mineiro’s youth academy. He made his professional debut for the club in 2015 and quickly caught the attention of scouts from other Brazilian clubs.

Career Overview

In 2017, Richarlison signed with Fluminense and had an impressive debut season with the club, scoring 10 goals in 22 appearances. His performances earned him a move to the English Premier League, where he joined Watford for a fee of around £11.5 million.

Richarlison had a strong start to his Premier League career, scoring five goals in his first 12 appearances for Watford. However, his form dipped in the second half of the season, and he finished the campaign with only five more goals.

Career At Everton

Despite his mixed performances, Richarlison’s potential was recognized by Everton, who signed him for a reported fee of £40 million in the summer of 2018. In his debut season for the club, Richarlison scored 14 goals in all competitions and was named Everton’s player of the season.

Richarlison continued to impress in his second season at Everton, scoring 13 goals in all competitions and helping the club reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. His performances earned him a call-up to the Brazil national team, and he made his debut in September 2018.

In the 2020-21 season, Richarlison continued to play a key role for Everton, scoring 13 goals in all competitions and helping the club finish in eighth place in the Premier League.

In 2022, Tottenham Hotspur grabbed the opportunity to sign Richarlison. He did a good job in his first half of the 2022/23 season with them but then had an unstable form throughout the rest of the season.

International Career

Richarlison also helped Brazil win the Copa America, scoring three goals in the tournament, including one in the final against Argentina.

In 2022 FIFA World Cup, Richarlison’s stunning overhead kick against Serbia won the ‘Goal Of The Tournament’ award. He was on an extraordinary run during the whole tournament but unfortunately couldn’t help them reach the finals.


Richarlison’s career has not been without controversy, however. In October 2020, he was sent off in a Premier League match against Liverpool for a reckless challenge on Thiago Alcantara.

He also caused controversy during the Copa America when he appeared to make a gesture towards Chilean players, which some interpreted as mocking the victims of the Pinochet dictatorship.


Despite these controversies, Richarlison remains one of the most exciting young talents in world football. His pace, power, and goal-scoring ability make him a valuable asset for both Everton and the Brazil national team. As he continues to develop, it is likely that Richarlison will become one of the most successful Brazilian footballers of his generation.
