When asked about his injury after Tottenham’s win, a tearful Richarlison told ESPN Brasil:

‘It’s kind of hard to speak because it’s close to a realisation, to my dream.

‘I’ve already suffered an injury like this, it’s similar, but I hope it can heal as soon as possible.

At Everton I was out for around two months.

‘I know it’s hard to talk at this moment but let’s see, I’ll recover.

On Monday I will have more tests but even walking hurts. Let’s wait, I may be in Qatar.

‘It’s all so close, it’s about a month to go, and we’ve been getting ready, working every day so that nothing serious can happen.

‘Unfortunately, today I had this calf injury but now it’s just a matter of waiting, doing the treatment every day so that I can recover as soon as possible.’
