Neymar Gets Dethroned, There Is A New Brazil King In Town

Neymar has been the man to watch in the Brazilian team for almost a decade now managing 69 goals and 50 assists.However with the completion of the Copa America tournament and exemption from Brazil's Olympic team,the number ten jersey was handed over to Richarlison.The new number ten has already proved he has what it takes to lead Brazil to glory and get out of Neymar's shadow.Richarlison has already scored 5 goals in just two games making him the tournament's top scorer.He scored a historic 30 minute hat trick in their opener against Germany and a brace against Saudi Arabia.Back when Neymar was in the team,Richarlison played for him that is get him balls but now he is playing for himself hence the impressive performances.If this is how he is going to perform for the remainder of the tournament then Brazil's number ten jersey will not be automatically Neymar's.The two will fight for it and if Richarlison wins he will be the new king.
