Shearer hails Spurs striker Richarlison after 2-goal Brazil performance

Former England captain Alan Shearer hailed Richarlison after his two-goal performance in Brazil's World Cup win against Serbia.

The Tottenham striker scored a spectacular second goal for the 2-0 win.

Shearer told BBC Sport: "He's a man in form in that yellow shirt. He is yet to score in the Premier League for Spurs but for Brazil he is on fire.

"The positioning of Richarlison to pick up those scrappy little goals, the ones where the keeper is going to tap them out in and around the six-yard box, give me as much satisfaction as the incredible second goal he scored.

"He's in the right position. He gets his shot away. Watch his movement. He's first to react as all good strikers are. It looks very simple but it's not. You've got to get in there then finish it. It's very, very good centre-forward play."
