Richarlison has said he received more than 10,000 messages in just five minutes after Brazil team-mate Neymar accidentally shared the Everton forward’s phone number on a Twitch live stream.

On Sunday, Paris Saint-Germain winger Neymar was live-streaming himself playing the video game Counter Strike when he received a call from Richarlison.

As Neymar presented his phone to the camera – and 25,000 of his 600,000 followers – Richarlison’s name and number were visible.

And the Everton man soon took to social media to call out his national side team-mate.

“Five minutes and I've already got over 10,000 messages,” he wrote.

“Thanks, Neymar.”

Richarlison was sent off in the final moments of Everton’s 2-2 Merseyside derby draw against Liverpool at Goodison Park on Saturday for a reckless challenge on Thiago.

In the first half, Richarlison’s team-mate Jordan Pickford escaped punishment for a tackle that forced Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk off the pitch and into a lengthy spell on the sidelines, with ACL surgery on the agenda.
