Brazil is proud of you, Ronaldo exclaims to the Tottenham attacker
Richarlison of Tottenham Hotspur has been urged by Brazilian legend Ronaldo to help Brazil win the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Richarlison, who scored a goal in Brazil's recent 4-1 victory over South Korea in the World Cup round of 16, was praised by Ronaldo as a source of national pride.
Richarlison has so far had a fantastic FIFA World Cup.
The former Everton star has three goals to his credit so far in the competition.
He is two points behind France forward Kylian Mbappe in the race for the Golden Boot.
Speaking to Ronaldo TV, Richarlison was described as “Wow! You're fantastic. Three games have already been played, leaving three more to go.
“What I achieved by motivating you. It is now your turn to inspire and you are inspiring millions of Brazilians and millions of kids with your art, your goals, your joy to play, your spontaneity, with your feelings. You make Brazil proud.
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan star added, “It was a beautiful goal (against South Korea) – you are playing centre-forward and you are the out-and-out forward that we have not seen for a while. Score a lot more goals. Go for it and bring the sixth World Cup home.”
