Manchester United legend Gary Neville has heaped on Tottenham Hotspur’s Richarlison.

The Brazilian joined Antonio Conte’s side from Everton for a sizable €58 million fee in the summer transfer window.

And Richarlison scored twice against Serbia, netting a brilliant brace, including a jaw-dropping scissor kick.

Neville was left mesmerized by the striker’s second-half acrobatic goal against Serbia and claimed the Tottenham man was better suited for international football than club football.

Neville told HITC, “In England, we are so used to Jesus. We pick Jesus, then you see this from Richarlison. He has been outstanding for Brazil.

“Jesus played in the last tournament and didn’t score in those five games and the coach has carried that over. That is world-class [against Serbia).”
