Tite wasn't surprised by Richarlison's display.

Brazil boss Tite heaped praise on Richarlison after the Everton star scored the winner for Brazil against Cameroon on Tuesday.

Richarlison replaced Neymar after the PSG forward went off with a groin problem in the early stages of the 1-0 friendly win over the African champions in Milton Keynes.

Tite said as Sky Sports quoted: "I was not surprised by Richarlison's performance. What I saw today was the continuation of him always coming on and playing well for Brazil.

"In his first game, he really impressed with his incision and his finishing, both his head and on the floor.

"I've also seen him play on the wing for Brazil and play really well and because of his qualities in training, we can also imagine him playing as a second striker as well. He's someone who's really impressed me since coming into the team."
