Silva tells Rich: time to wise up





Marco Silva has told Richarlison that he still has plenty of work to do after his first Brazil call-up.

Winger Richarlison, 21, has been picked for friendlies against the USA and El Salvador later this month, after scoring three goals in two games for the Goodison club.

But Everton manager Silva insists improvement is still needed, including his discipline after he was sent off for a headbutt in last weekend’s draw at Bournemouth.

"It is an important moment for him,'' said Silva."To get a call-up for Brazil is not easy as they have big quality."

"Last week was not really good for him and it is something he has to learn from and fast.

He has to do what he has to do where he is strong, which is playing football and nothing more.''

Banned Richarlison is one of eight Everton  absentees for today's visit of Huddersfield.
