Richarlison could face action from the FA after setting up a torch in Goodison Park

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

From that foggy station and small open-air restaurant, where you can eat as much as you want for £ 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 left his homeland for an 11-hour flight to Belo Horizonte, wearing borrowed shoes and unable to afford a return ticket.
