The 23-year-old was named on the bench for the Seleçao's first game of CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying and came on for Roberto Firmino with 20 minutes to go with the score at 4-0 following Jose Carrasco's own goal.
Marquinhos and Firmino (2) had scored the first three and Philip Coutinho scored the fifth in the 73rd minute.
Elsewhere, Yerry Mina played the full 90 minutes and James Rodriguez 74 as Colombia coasted to a 3-0 win over Venezuela thanks to goals by Duvan Zapata (2) and Luis Muriel.
The Cafeteros' win was marred by the broken leg suffered by Santiago Arias, the former Atletico Madrid and now Bayer Leverkusen fullback who was linked with Everton over the summer.
Brazil travel to Peru and Colombia to Chile for their second qualifiers on Tuesday.

Very sad to learn of Arias' broken leg, but in the past we would have probably signed him this summer, seen him play 4 games and then break his leg in this match and be out for the next six months.
Hopefully. all of our international players return unscathed and not too jet lagged for next weekend.

I know it's great for the players etc., but personally I have such little interest in international football, other than the involvement of our own troops, I wasn't sure.
Likewise, here's hoping that we come out the other end injury free and not knackered from playing and travel so we can sock it to the rs next weekend.
Is it my imagination, or fading memory, but are there countless more "friendlies"these days? I think it would be good if there was a historic stat reflecting "full international caps" in competitive games excluding friendlies which would give a better comparison against past achievements.
Every time I hear of a new record of appearances or some such I think "Yes, but..... "

The European Nations League, which everyone has a go at as irrelevant, was introduced so that there would be fewer 'meaningless' friendlies and instead we'd have a competition that nobody is actually bothered about winning.
The theory that this would make players, coaches and fans take matches in between world and Euro qualifiers and tournaments seriously was OK. But in practice it just puts more pressure on players and clubs.

Sorry to hear about Arias. I wish him well as I had hoped to see him in a blue shirt behind James. Still Coleman is playing really well and will hopefully be fit to tame Mane in the Derby.

Terrible news about Arias, lets hope all our players on international duty all return safe and well, with no injuries.

Nice to be in a footy ground again today, one of 298 watching Marine beat Tadcaster Albion 2-0. Some great pieces of skill, and a top class free kick goal from the edge of the area.

Paul Cook, John Coleman, Jimmy Bell, Alan Harper, all ex-pros and managers, all played for “the valley” that day, and I played a little bit of football with Gary Brabin, who was a big strong lad.
Good look to your nephew Michael, because its not easy for kids trying to make their way in the professional game. Dedication “alone” isnt even easy for City kids, but if it was easy, everyone would be doing it, so tell him tonight is his last bevy until hes 21, but time definitely flies when youre having fun!!

But when I seen he wasn't starting, I went back to bed... meaning Richarlison obviously hahaha... I have given so much stick out this week to kopite mates that I am worried now for the derby.

Horrible injury to Arias... slid for a tackle and his leg got caught up under him. The opposing forward, Machis, was red-carded because the ref apparently thought he'd stomped on the leg, but VAR showed there was no contact and the red was rescinded.

Timmy Cahill, never used to suffer, so hopefully our players have got a proper bed each for their flight home. Not ideal but if they can get their heads down they should be alright, and finally for a derby match
that is worth getting excited about.
Did you see the text flying around from the official Liverpool website, where they have published the league table but left the top-spot blank? They fuckin hate us alright, so lets start giving them loads more opportunities, for them to show their true colours, singing WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED!

As Swedens first choice keeper it should be an insight into how much of a threat he will be too Pickford?

Many clubs including RS have players at risk and this year Covid also comes into play (excuse the pun).
Still, I would like our guys not to be selected at this time.
