Richarlison Scores for Brazil Ahead of Possible Everton Return

Brazil defeated Uruguay 2-0 in Montevideo courtesy of goals from Arthur and Richarlison to maintain a ideal record and top spot in South American World Cup qualifying.

The win in Montevideo was Brazil's fourth in a row in the qualifying stage and ensures they are the only side in the 10-team South American group to have won all of their opening matches.

Argentina, with Lionel Messi pulling the strings, brushed aside a limited Peru 2-0 in Lima, with goals from Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez and Nicholas Gonzalez in a game in which they were never troubled.

Ecuador moved into third following a thumping 6-1 win against Colombia at home. Uruguay dropped to fifth with two wins and two losses.

There are quite a few Serie A representatives in the Uruguay team taking part in 2022 World Cup qualifiers this week.

Roberto Firmino squandered a great chance two minutes later when he was denied by Campana, but Brazil would double their lead through Richarlison.

Manchester United star Edinson Cavani had a night to forget for Uruguay after he was sent off for a unsafe challenge on Everton forward Richarlison.

It was a cruel blow just before half time, emphasised when Uruguay skipper Diego Godin powered a header against the Brazil bar from a free kick by De La Cruz.
