Brazil Condemn Racist Attacks On Richarlison

Brazil have condemned the racist abuse of Richarlison after the forward had a banana and other objects thrown at him in their 5-1 friendly win over Tunisia.


Following his celebration of scoring Brazil’s second goal in Paris, the Tottenham striker was involved in the confrontation that followed.

The Confederation of Brazilian Football (CBF) issued a statement in which it “repudiated any expression of prejudice” and “reiterated its attitude to combat racism.”

Prior to the beginning of the game, Brazil had posed with an anti-racism banner.


The group arranged themselves in a line in front of a sign that read, “Without our black players, we wouldn’t have stars on our shirts.”

Ednaldo Rodrigues, the president of the CBF, provided some further thoughts in a second statement by saying, “Attitudes like this cannot be accepted on or off the field.”

Richarlison’s goal restored the lead after Montassar Talbi cancelled out Raphinha’s opener.
