16th October 2021

LEEDS UNITED star Raphinha had a night he will never forget as he scored his first goals for Brazil in a 4-1 rout of Uruguay.

The winger, 24, was called up to the national team by manager Tite for the first time during the October international break.

And after two substitute appearances Raphinha justified his selection with two goals against Uruguay.

Neymar scored the opener after ten minutes before Raphinha put the game fully in Brazil's control.

The Leeds ace then tapped in a rebound from a Neymar shot and celebrated with delight with his captain.

And the pair linked up again with Raphinha pouncing on a through ball from Neymar to fire low past the goalkeeper.

Luis Suarez reminded everyone of his talent with a well-taken free-kick before Gabriel Barbosa headed in for Brazil late on.

But it was Raphinha's night and he shared his joy after the match.


He said: "This couldn't be more memorable for me.

"This is me fulfilling my childhood dream. It's so gratifying to score.

"It's going to be very difficult to forget this night."
