Richarlison's Incredible Reaction To Being Called Up To Brazil’s Copa America Squad

The moment Everton forward Richarlison found out he made Brazil's Copa America squad was caught on camera and it was really quite heartwarming.

Surrounded by family members at his grandparents' house, Richarlison has his legs crossed and eyes glued to the TV.

Then, when his name is called out, he and his relatives jump for joy before he embraces everyone in the room in a quite beautiful moment.

Richarlimum and Richarlidad will be delighted with their son's achievement but the former Watford man undoubtedly deserves a place in the attack.

He scored 13 goals in the Premier League for Liverpool, while he's also made a promising start to international football - having scored three goals in his first eight appearances for the Selecao.

Brazil coach Tite has picked a strong squad for the tournament on home soil, with a whole host of world-class players at his disposal.

However, there are also some other noticeable names missing from the squad. Liverpool's Fabinho has missed out on a spot, despite having a very good season.

Moreover, Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Vinícius Júnior, Juventus' Douglas Costa, West Ham United's Felipe Anderson and Tottenham Hotspur's Lucas Moura are all not in the squad.

Brazil will take on Qatar and Honduras in friendlies at the start of the next month in preparation for group games against Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru.
