Richarlison could face FA action after picking up a torch at Goodison Park

At the dilapidated red brick bus station in the small Brazilian town of Nova Venice, I witnessed a story worth telling.

From that misty station and the small open-air restaurant where you can eat as much as you want for the equivalent of £ 2, was the starting point for Everton star Richarlison’s journey to the Premier League.

Desperate for the success of his rejection, he was 17 years old, and from here he left his hometown for an 11-hour trip to Belo Horizonte, with borrowed shoes on and not a return ticket.
