Vera Lucia is the mother of Tottenham Hotspur and the Brazil national team forward Richarlison

They were together until their eldest son Richarlison was eight. 

Richarlison, in an interview, recalled the day when he had to make an emotional decision at such a young age. 

He said when his parents split up, his mother was leaving Nova Venecia, where he was born. 

He was on top of the moving truck, ready to leave with his mom, but he jumped off the truck and went running to his dad. 

He stayed until he was ten. After his dad relocated for his new job, he returned to his mom. 

When his mom worked as a cleaner and struggled to make ends for her four children, he went to work to support her. 

He washed cars, sold popsicles, made chocolate truffles, and sometimes even went to work with his grandfather, who was a farmer.

Richarlison was once held at a gunpoint

The Tottenham Hotspur and the Brazil national team ace was once held at gunpoint and could have lost his life. 

The area they lived in had a bad influence, with most people involved in drugs. 

The majority of the footballer's friends were selling drugs as they saw it as a way of making easy money. 

He was offered weed several times, but he never smoked. 

While talking to FFT, he said that his life could have ended several times from being in the wrong place at the wrong time and recalled the time when he was held at gunpoint. 

He said the guy held him at gunpoint one day thinking of him to be a drug dealer trying to steal his distribution point. 

He was scared to death and thought, “if the guy pulls the trigger, he is dead, but luckily, he survived and moved on, he said.

Richarlison credits his coach from football school, who was a police officer, for giving him and his brothers good advice. 

He said a lot of his friends got lost in drugs and are in prison, with whom he still talks, but he is thankful for not going on the wrong track. 

He had a conscience, and he couldn’t do that.

Her son’s recent bicycle goal kick against Serbia in their opening game has been the talk of the town and will forever remain in World Cup history

After Neymar limped off the field due to an ankle injury, Richarlison came forward as a savior scoring both goals in a 2-0 victory over Serbia

In both of the goals, Vinicius Junior played his part in passing the ball, but the second goal was truly magnificent. 

After Vinicius provided the pass to Richarlison, he popped up the ball to himself and finished it extraordinarily with the bicycle kick goal. 

He is the fourth player to score the first two goals at a single World Cup for Brazil after Careca, Neymar, and Philippe Coutinho.

He wrote,
