Alex Iwobi has simply stated on Instagram 'tough game' to his Everton teammate Richarlison after Nigeria and Brazil clashed in a friendly encounter on Sunday. 

The game took place in Brazil, with Richalison coming on as a second-half substitute, as both teams shared the spoils on the day. 


Whilst things haven't been going well for the attacking duo at Everton, they were able to get some respite from club football on the international stage.

Nonetheless, after the game, Iwobi sent this message to Richarlison from his personal Instagram account, as he also posted a picture of the Brazilian's shirt:

Both Iwobi and Richarlison will be hoping the international break will do Everton the world of good because they are struggling so far this season.

Marco Silva's side went into this two-week break having suffered a defeat at Burnley, which ended up pushing them into the relegation zone.

At the start of the campaign, they were being tipped to push/finish in a European place, as that target seems a long way off, at this moment in time.

Silva will be hoping his summer signings, such as Iwobi can add some bite into his so far misfiring attack, whilst he also has to deal with Everton's defensive issues.
