At least two other objects, including a water bottle, were also thrown onto the field.
The Brazilian team was using the friendly to take a stand against racism. Before the start of the game, the Brazilian players posed with a sign that read: “Without our black players, we would not have stars on our jersey”, in reference to the five Brazilian World Cup titles that are represented on the team’s crest .
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said that it “reinforced its position to combat racism” and “repudiates any show of prejudice” in a sentence released after the game.
Security did not identify the person who threw objects.
Two weeks ago, a Spanish agent said that a black Brazilian player, Vinicius Jr., should “stop playing the money“when celebrating goals.
