(Reuters) – Everton striker Richarlison has been charged with improper conduct by the English Football Association (FA) for throwing a flare off the field after his goal in their 1-0 Premier League win over Chelsea at Goodison Park last month.

Richarlison celebrated his 46th-minute goal by picking up the flare, which had landed on the field, and throwing it back towards the stand. He has until June 8 to respond to the charge, the FA said in a statement on Wednesday.
