    The Brazilian was replaced by Yves Bissouma in the 52nd minute after picking up a calf injury.

    And the emotion was all too much for him as he spoke on his way out of the ground.

    He said: “It’s kind of hard to say because it’s close to the realisation of my dream (the World Cup).

    “I’ve already suffered a similar injury to this but I hope it can heal as soon as possible.

    “The last time when I was at Everton, I was out of action for about two months.

    “I know it’s hard to talk at this moment, but let’s see, I’ll recover. Monday, I have an exam but even walking hurts. I have to stay positive if I want to go to Qatar.

    “It’s all so close, it’s about a month to go, and we’ve been getting ready, working every day so that nothing serious can happen.

    “Unfortunately, today I had this calf injury, but now it’s just a matter of waiting, doing the treatment every day so that I can recover as soon as possible.”

    With just under six weeks to go until Brazil kick off their World Cup campaign, his tournament now looks to be in doubt.

    Richarlison went down injured in the Everton box just after half-time.

    He massaged his calf with a pained expression on his face as the Spurs medics rushed on to tend to him.

    The decision was quickly made that the 25-year-old could not continue against his former club.

    Richarlison bit on his shirt in frustration and looked emotional after being forced off.

    Spurs gaffer Antonio Conte looked worried as Richarlison hobbled off, and the Italian confirmed the forward will have a scan on Sunday.

    Conte said on the extent of the problem: “We don’t know, we hope it is not so serious he felt a problem in his calf.

    “He will have an MRI to understand it tomorrow, we hope it is not serious.”
