Brazil condemns banana attack on Richarlison in Paris during Tunisia match -

Brazilian head coach Tite and ex international, Juninho Paulista ​have condemned the racist attack on Richarlison in Paris, during the game against Tunisia at the Parc des Princes.

A banana was thrown at the Tottenham Hotspur forward during his goal celebration when he restored the five-time world champions lead in the 19th minute, to cancel Tunisian Montassar Talbi equalizer.

Speaking after the game, Juninho said, “The reason why I came here is to talk about the racism our player suffered during the game. The Brazilian Football Confederation, CBF released a statement about this and I came here (to the press conference) to retirate this position. I severely condemn all racist conduct.”

The Brazilian football confederation in a tweet after the game stated, “After Brazil’s second goal, a banana was thrown towards Richarlison. The CBF reinforces its stance against discrimination and vehemently repudiates yet another episode of racism in football.”

The former Everton forward also called on FFIA to act and not just speak about it. ​

“The process of education and punishment should also be at the stadium,” Tite said.

“We shouldn’t be hearing all sorts of insults from the fans. Entities should intervene and take the right actions. This is education of our young stars, our children, grand children. Whoever misbehaved must be punish,” he explained.

Tite added, “The Tunisian fans disrespected our national anthem, they booed us. That’s not respect. Football governing body needs to act quickly incidents like this.”

Algeria’s Fennecs edge Super Eagles 2-1 in friendly

Algeria defeat Nigeria

A controversial penalty tucked in by Riyad Mahrez, and a 28-yard scorcher by Youcef Atal saw Algeria complete a comeback and condemned the Super Eagles to a 2-1 defeat.

The international friendly played in Oran on Tuesday saw Nigeria open scoring early in the ninth minute through France –based Terem Moffi.

This was after Moffi escaped the attention of Algerian defenders and hooked the ball into the net as a shot by defender Calvin Bassey was deflected in a goalmouth melee.

Two–time African champions Algeria came close to getting the equalizer ten minutes later when goalkeeper Francis Uzoho upended Riyad Mahrez in the box from a counter-attack, but the hosts had already been caught off-side.

Minutes later, the Super Eagles thought they were 2-0 up when Ademola Lookman finished calmly as they counter-attacked, but Algerian referee Mehrez Melki ruled it off-side.

Mahrez levelled up scores at 1-1 for the North Africans five minutes from recess when he slotted past Uzoho after referee Melki adjudged that Frank Onyeka had fouled Youcef Belaili in the Nigerian box.

The Super Eagles were missing several first-team players, including strikers Victor Osimhen and Sadiq Umar, midfielder Wilfred Ndidi and defenders William Ekong and Jamilu Collins.

Notwithstanding, they created a hatful of chances in a frenetic first half that would have made the game a fait accompli. The hosts wrapped up the game when Youcef Atal, latching on to a free ball from 28 yards after a poorly cleared corner kick, slammed past a badly-positioned Uzoho.

Nigeria will next face Portugal in a friendly in Lisbon on November 17.
