The Brazilian national team won their friendly match against Tunisia clearly with 5:1. A racist incident occurred during the match in Paris
Brazil coach Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, with Neymar playing from the start, saw his team take the lead as early as the 11th minute when Raphinha headed Casemiro’s cross well over Tunisian keeper Dahmen.
The Tunisians, with 1. FC Köln’s Skhiri starting in midfield, equalised through Talibi (18th), but this was promptly cancelled out by Richarlison (19th). After the Brazilian’s goal and during his jubilation, there was a suspected racist incident: a banana flew in the direction of the striker.
Before the game, which was finally decided by Neymar (29th), Raphinha (40th) and Pedro (74th), the Brazilian players had gathered in front of a sign saying “Without our black players we would not have stars on our jerseys”. The stars represent the five World Cup titles Brazil has won.
The Brazilian federation said it “reaffirmed its position to fight racism. “
