Its Opened my Mouth About the Recent Slump
Brazil won 1-0 over Peru in the second leg of the South American qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA North and Central America World Cup held at the Estadio Nacional de Lima in Lima, Peru at 11 a.m. on the 13th (Korean time).
As a result, Brazil ranked 1st in the group with 2 wins (6 points), and Peru ranked 7th in the group with 1 draw and 1 loss (1 point).
Brazil used a 4-2-3-1 formation. Richarlison, Rodrygo, Neymar, Rafinha, Casemiro, Guimaraes, Lodi, Magalhais, Marquinhos, Danilo, and Ederson started.
Brazil led the attack, but was unable to open Peru’s goal.
Even though the goal was shaken, the goal was not recognized as offside.
Rafinha hit the net in the 16th minute of the first half, but was declared offside in the immediate process.
Richarlison struggled. Richarlison headed a cross from Rafinha in the 23rd minute of the first half, but unfortunately it went wide.
He even succeeded in scoring once. 지울프-토토
In the 32nd minute of the first half, Guimaraes scored the first goal with a header from the front of the goal on a cross from the right corner of the penalty box.
However, after a long video review (VAR), the referee declared Richarlison offside and the score was cancelled.
In the end, Brazil, which finished the first half 0-0, changed its offensive resources in the second half and aimed for the first goal.
In the 19th minute of the second half, Richarlison was removed and Jesus was brought in. However, the replacement effect was not significant.
In the end, the game was decided.
In the 40th minute of the second half, Danilo, Rafinha, and Guimaraes were removed, and Van der Song, Martinelli, and Joelinton were brought in.
After continuing to knock, it finally bore fruit.
In the 45th minute of the second half, in a corner kick attack, Marquinhos cut the ball from Neymar from the front and shot, shaking the net.
Five minutes of extra time were given, but no additional goals were scored, and Brazil won 1-0.
Richarlison failed to score that day as well.
Richarlison has been suffering from a serious slump recently, scoring only two goals in 2023.
After scoring against Liverpool in the Premier League (PL) in the 2022-23 season, all he did was hit the net in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) against Fulham last August.
There was a reason for Richarlison’s recent slump.
In an interview with Brazilian media outlet Globo, he said, “On the pitch, I’m a happy team player.
I try to help as much as possible. Sometimes things don’t go as I want.
I think this part is a bit hindered by things outside the pitch.
Even if you want to do it right, eventually the wrong thing happens.
I will focus on the club. The storm has passed. I will come back stronger.”
Richie Song recently parted ways with the agent who has been with him since the beginning of his career.
Britain’s ‘Football London’ explained the background, saying, “Richarlison recently broke up with Renato Velasco, who has been with him since the beginning of his career.”
It is understood that due to external reasons he was unable to concentrate 100% on the game.
Richarlison said: It’s been a tumultuous time off the field for the past five months.
Now everything is back to normal. All the people who were only looking at my money have left. Things are starting to turn around now.
I’m doing well at Tottenham.
I will,” he pledged.
Richarlison started as a starter in the first leg of the 2026 FIFA North and Central America World Cup South American regional qualifier against Bolivia on the 9th
but was substituted out without showing any significant performance.
Afterwards, Richarlison cried on the bench.
He said: “The tears weren’t because I wasn’t playing well, it was more of an outburst about what was happening off the pitch.
I will go back to the UK, seek help from a psychologist and get my mind together.
I will come back stronger this week.
We will talk to the club and get the rhythm of the game back,” he explained.
Lastly, Richarlison said about the goal being canceled against Peru: “I scored a goal, but unfortunately it was worthless.
The important thing is that the team won.
I’m happy to wear the national team shirt again and I can play.
I’m happy,” he said.
