What The Papers Say - March 22

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Richarlison features in Friday's Liverpool Echo saying he is ready to step in and fill the void left by Neymar in the Brazil national team. 

The Everton forward is in the squad set to face Panama and Czech Republic in the current international break but PSG star Neymar will miss out because of a metatarsal injury he sustained back in January. 


The same paper also report Jordan Pickford will start in goal for England against Czech Republic in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Friday night, news confirmed by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate at his pre-match press conference. 

Pickford also appeared in front of the media alongside his international manager and discussed his club form and wanting to keep a clean sheet against the Czechs in honour of legendary England stopper Gordon Banks, who passed away last month aged 81. 
 
Additionally, the local paper assesses the impact Brexit could have on Everton's transfer policy and explains the story of how a 90-year-old Blue and father of 11 was surprised by Club legends Peter Reid, Graeme Sharp and Ian Snodin ahead of last weekend's 2-0 win over Chelsea. 

Looking at the national newspapers, the Daily Star claims Everton could rival Newcastle United for the signature of Salomon Rondon this summer. 

The Venezuelan striker, 29, is currently on loan at St James' Park from West Bromwich Albion and has scored nine Premier League goals for the Magpies this term.
