Raphinha Produces Outrageous Moment Of Skill For Brazil Against Colombia

Leeds United winger Raphinha produced an outrageous moment of skill in Brazil's World Cup qualifier against Colombia last night.

The 24-year-old showed an electric turn of pace down the right flank and unleashed three drag backs, before playing the ball into the box.

There was plenty of praise for the Leeds man in reaction to the tweet, with Whites' fans clearly worried that one of their star players could be leaving Elland Road in the not-too-distant future.

For Brazil, it was a frustrating night overall, as they dropped their first points in World Cup qualifying after winning their opening nine qualifiers.

Raphinha started the game on the bench before being brought as a substitute for Gabriel Barbosa with 30 minutes left, and continued the feel-good factor around his fledgling career with the Seleção.

He made a dream debut in a 3-1 win over Venezuela on Friday, when he registered two assists and started the move which led to Brazil's penalty.

Raphinha has also started the domestic season strongly with Leeds, after scoring 3 goals in 7 appearances for the Whites this season. He found the net in 2-2 and 1-1 draws with Everton and Newcastle United, before scoring their only goal in a 2-1 home defeat to West Ham United.

The Brazilian also played the full 90 minutes in the club's first win of the season before the international break - a 1-0 victory over Watford. That result leaves Marcelo Bielsa's men sitting 16th in the Premier League with 6 points from 7 games, in what has been a slow start to the campaign for the West Yorkshire side.

They return to action on Saturday with a trip to the south coast for a match against Southampton, before concluding October with a visit from Wolverhampton Wanderers to Elland Road a week later, and trips to Arsenal and Norwich City in the Carabao Cup and Premier League respectively.
