Even before opening the scoring with one of his least eye-catching touches of the day, young magician Richarlison had already shown he is the real deal for Watford today.

The 20-year-old Brazilian winger lit up the Hornets' display against Bournemouth, giving Charlie Daniels and Adam Smith, both deployed to shut him out by Eddie Howe to precious little effect, afternoons they will want to forget.

From a promising if unremarkable debut last week, Richarlison already looks confident and certainly capable, and was far and away man of the match at the Vitality Stadium in Watford's 2-0 win.

But understandably, for a youngster who can barely even say 'hello' in English - although the Portuguese word 'gol' may be a little more transferrable - head coach Marco Silva, while delighted with his early impact, is refusing to get carried away.

"I’m happy, of course," he said. "I don’t like to talk about individuals too much. I know him very well and we’ve analysed him for a month and a half before signing him.

"He’s a talent, it’s easy to understand that - but he’s not only a talent. He comes to work hard everyday.

"We need to be calm with him, he’s only 20 and it’s his first minutes in England. We need to have calm with him. He doesn’t speak a word of English, and we need to give him time."

Richarlison was linked with Chelsea and Ajax earlier in the transfer window and convinced the Football Association to award him a work permit despite having never made a senior appearance for Brazil, and Fluminense - his old club - a mid-table entity in the country's top flight.

Any fear the youngster would have had over a move away from his family, friends and even culture has looked to have already been waylaid by his early confidence in a Golden Boys shirt.

"He’s doing ok, said Silva. "When you have one dream in your mind, and coming here is the moment to show it for everyone.

"Before you can show it, you need to work, and he works hard. After that, he has quality, and that makes everything easy."
