Richarlison has two goals in Qatar 2022 and tonight will be on the bench for Brazil against Cameroon.
Brazil are poised to claim their perfect record in the group stage against Cameroon and top Group G. Tite’s team managed 2-0 wins over Serbia and 1-0 over Switzerland to go plus-three.
Cameroon lost 1-0 to Switzerland and bounced back to 3-3 against Serbia and need a win over the five-time champions to have a chance of going on to the round of 16, it will also depend on the result between Serbia and Switzerland.
Richarlison, who scored two goals in the match against Serbia, was one of Brazil’s best players, here’s why Tite left him out of the game against Cameroon.
Why isn’t Richarlison playing against Cameroon?
Richarlison was given the night off against Cameroon in favor of Gabriel Jesus for the start of the game. Tite placed a B-squad for the match in hopes of getting a good game from his substitutes.
Brazil will most likely play South Korea in the round of 16 if they finish first, which probably they will. By unlikely circumstances if Brazil were to finish second, then the five -time champions would play Portugal.
