Tottenham Hotspur star Richarlison sends emotional message after Brazil’s 2022 World Cup exit vs Croatia

Tottenham Hotspur star Richarlison was in tears after Brazil’s elimination from the 2022 FIFA World Cup at the hands of Croatia on 9 December.

Despite the Spurs striker’s best efforts, the Selecao Canarinho‘s dream of lifting their sixth World Cup title ended prematurely. They took the lead via Neymar Jr. in extra time, before the Croats scored three minutes before the final whistle.

The penalty shootouts resulted in a 4-2 win for last year’s finalists in Russia. Rodrygo and Marqunihos’ miss from the spot proved to be costly.

Many Brazil players were reduced to tears after their shock elimination after being so dominant throughout the tournament, barring the arguably ‘less important’ game against Cameroon in the group stages.

Speaking after the game, Richarlison said (h/t David Ornstein of the Athletic):

“Have to apologise to our family and [sic.] fans. Now it’s time to go to the bedroom & cry because we’re humans, we’re flesh and [sic.] blood. We suffered a very painful loss today & we could have won”

The Tottenham striker was chosen over Liverpool’s in-form Roberto Firmino and played more minutes than Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus. On the pitch, he showed exactly why that was the case under manager Tite.

The only positive for Spurs fans from this game is that Richy will return a bit early from Qatar and have enough to recover and recoup before club football resumes after Christmas. He is yet to make himself an irreplaceable part of manager Antonio Conte’s team.

The battle for playing time with Dejan Kulusevski will resume once he is back at Spurs, as the Sweden international has also recovered from an injury he suffered earlier this season. Richarlison, 25, will expect to play at least two more World Cups for Brazil given his age and quality.
