Brazil forward Richarlison has been suspended for one match and fined 25,000 pounds ($30,050) for throwing a flare off the field while playing for Everton against Chelsea last season, the English Football Association (FA) said on Tuesday.

Richarlison, who has signed for Tottenham Hotspur for the 2022-23 season, threw the flare after his goal in Everton's 1-0 Premier League win over Chelsea at Goodison Park in May.
