For the first time in football history. The Brazilian national team played in a unique match
The Brazilian national football team played in black for the first time in its history. The pentacampeons decided to support their compatriot Vinícius Júnior in a friendly match against Guinea. The 22-year-old Real Madrid midfielder was subjected to racism in Spanish league matches.
In addition to wearing black uniforms, the players of both national teams knelt before the meeting on the field of the stadium in Barcelona as a sign of the fight against racism.
It is worth noting that Ramon Menezes' players came out for the second half in their traditional yellow and blue outfits.
The match itself ended with a 4-1 victory for the favourites. In the first half, Joelinton and Rodrigo scored two goals within three minutes of each other. The Guineans scored one goal before the break. Militao scored a devastating goal at the start of the second half. Vinícius put the finishing touch with a penalty in the 88th minute.
