the Brazilian Federation condemns the banana throw aimed at Richarlison against Tunisia

Author of the second Auriverde goal at the Parc des Princes against the Tunisians, the Brazilian striker received projectiles, including a banana, from the stands.

A banana was thrown from the stands towards Brazilian striker Richarlison who was celebrating a goal scored against Tunisia on Tuesday in a friendly at the Parc des Princes, where the match was also briefly interrupted due to lasers pointed at the players. While Richarlison had just scored Brazil’s second goal (19th minute) in this preparation meeting for the 2022 World Cup (November 20-December 18), the Tottenham striker was targeted by a few projectiles from the stands, including a banana . Looking upset, Richarlison returned to his position after celebrating the goal with his teammates.

Immediately, the Brazilian Federation (CBF) condemned this racist act through its Twitter account:Unfortunately, after the action, a banana was thrown on the lawn in the direction of Richarlison, author of the second Brazilian goal. The CBF reaffirms its position in the fight against racism and repudiates any manifestation of prejudice.“ Last week, the Brazilian team defended another of its attackers, Vinicius, targeted by racist chants during a Real Madrid match on the ground of its neighbor, Atlético. Spanish justice has opened an investigation.
