Richarlison, brazilian forward

"It is my first hat-trick, it's impossible to explain, especially since it is with the Brazilian national team, I will never forget it. I am very happy, fulfilling a dream. When I asked to be released from Everton it was for this, to honor this shirt, and I hope to continue like this. I will celebrate a lot because it was an important victory for us. I want to send a big hug to my family, unfortunately I only had two days to stay with them, but it was enough to recharge my batteries, I needed it because I was a little sad after the America Cup. I just have to thank the affection of everyone who cheered for us"

How Germany arrives

The last friendly match of the German national team took place on Saturday (17) in Wakayama, southern Japan, and when the score was 1-1 the game was interrupted by insults to defender Jordan Torunarigha, who is of Nigerian origin. The coach is Stefan Kuntz, UEFA Euro champion in 1996 and top scorer of the German Championship in 1986 and 1994. A Kaiserslautern idol, he is 58 years old and led the Under-21 team to the UEFA European Under-21 Championship title in 2017
