As Richarlison celebrated his goal in the first half, he was thrown a banana.

Brazil teammate and Manchester United midfielder Fred stepped off the pitch.

Richarlison and his Brazilian buddies had issued an anti-racism message before kick-off, reminding fans of the importance of black players in Brazilian history.

The team posed next to a banner that read: “Without our black players, we wouldn’t have stars on our shirts.”

The statement came in response to Vinicius Jr being twice racially abused nine days ago in the run-up to Real Madrid’s game against Atletico Madrid.

First, the winger was told by Spanish agent Pedro Bravo to ‘respect the rivals and stop playing the monkey’ after celebrating a goal against Mallorca.

Real Madrid promised legal action but Vinicius took matters into his own hands as he defiantly danced alongside Rodrygo in celebration against Atletico.

That came not long after Vinicius was racially abused by Atletico fans before the game started.

Fans gathered in front of the Wanda Metropolitano as the players entered the stadium and some members of the fan base began chanting the words, “You’re a monkey, Vinicius, you’re a monkey.”

Brazil’s official Twitter account was quick to reiterate its anti-racism stance after Tuesday’s sickening incident.

One post said: “Unfortunately, after the action, a banana was thrown onto the pitch towards Richarlison, author of Brazil’s second goal.

“CBF reaffirms its position on combating racism and rejects any biased expression.”

The president of the Brazilian federation, Ednaldo Rodrigues, added in a statement: “I come again publicly to express my disapproval. This time I saw it with my own eyes. That shocks us. We must always remember that we are all equal regardless of color, race or religion.

“The fight against racism is not a cause but a fundamental change to wipe this type of crime off the planet. I insist on saying the penalties must be more severe.”

Richarlison came on for Vinicius at half-time as Brazil led 4-1.

Barcelona’s former Leeds star Raphinha opened the scoring with a brilliant header from the edge of the box in the 11th minute.

However, Tunisia equalized seven minutes later with an opportunistic header from Montassar Talbi from a free-kick.

A minute later, however, Brazil were back in front when Raphinha saw Richarlison scramble behind the defense and the striker fired a low shot between the keeper’s legs for his seventh goal in six games for his country.

Brazil extended their lead in the 29th minute with a Neymar penalty after Aissa Laidouni held off Casemiro.

Raphinha scored his second with a precise low shot from the edge of the box in the 40th after a lightning-fast counterattack.

Two minutes later, Tunisian defender Dylan Bronn received a red card for a foul on Neymar.

With victory assured, Brazil slacked off in the second half as coach Tite sent on several substitutes.

Flamengo striker Pedro, the biggest sensation in the Brazilian league this season, came on as a substitute and scored the fifth with a superb first shot from the edge of the box in 74th place.
