Richarlison and Vinicius Jr were photographed fighting during Brazil training and had to be separated by Neymar and Dani Alves.
Richarlison of Everton was furious as he grabbed the Champions League winner by the shirt before being grabbed around the neck by Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain in an attempt to break up the scuffle.
Richarlison is frequently in the news in England for his teasing of rival Liverpool fans, and he would almost certainly be grateful to his countryman for defeating the Reds in the Champions League final.
Vinicius scored the game-winning goal for Real Madrid against Liverpool, and Richarlison was one of the first to welcome him back to his national team after a short break before joining the Brazil squad for a series of friendlies, despite the fact that the country had already qualified for the 2022 World Cup.
The 21-year-old played 19 minutes in a 5-1 win over South Korea, in which Richarlison scored the opening goal, and reports suggest he will replace the striker in their next match against Japan.
It’s unclear whether this was the cause of the brawl, but thankfully their teammates intervened before things got out of hand.
Vinicius has also been winding up Madrid teammate Karim Benzema, with the duo forming a world-class partnership for the LaLiga-winning side.
The former Flamengo player revealed that his French counterpart hopes to face Brazil in the final in Qatar, but he doubts his chances.
