The Brazilian national soccer team, famous for its yellow uniform, changed into a black uniform and sent a message against racial discrimination.
It was an evaluation match against the Guinea national team held at the RCDE Stadium in Barcelona, Spain on the 18th (Korean time).메이저사이트
The color of the Brazilian national team is the bright yellow of the Brazilian flag. This is also why the team’s nickname is the yellow bird ‘Canary’.
However, on this day, the Brazilian players went to the game wearing black uniforms, not yellow.
Amid a series of cases where Brazilian national team players recently suffered racial discrimination in their team’s games, the black uniform contained a message of solidarity with them and against racial discrimination.
Vinicius Junior, who plays for Spain’s Real Madrid, was racially abused by the home crowd during an away game against Valencia last month.

Valencia fans shouted ‘monkey’ to Vinicius, and Vinicius pointed his hand in that direction and engaged in a war of words.
As a result, the previous incident in which Vinicius’ doll was hung from the railing of a bridge in Madrid was mentioned again, causing great outrage worldwide.
According to the Brazilian Football Association, on the 10th, a Brazilian player named Felipe Silveira was racially discriminated against at the stadium.
Silveira is also a friend and advisor to Vinicius, according to the Brazilian Football Association.
Before the match, players from Brazil and the Guinea national team posed and knelt in front of a placard that read, “If there is racism, there is no game.”
It was the first time in history that the Brazilian national team wore black jerseys. The away kit of the Brazilian national team is blue.
In the second half, he changed back to the yellow uniform.
“Another reason our national team is here is to fight racism, a crime that needs to be eradicated worldwide,” said Ednaudo Rodriguez, president of the Brazilian Football Association, in a statement.
The match ended in a 4-1 victory for Brazil.
Joelin Tong, who was first selected for the national team, scored the first goal in the 27th minute, and Rodrygo scored an additional goal in the 30th minute.
Guinea’s Serto Girassi scored a chase goal in the 36th minute, and Rodrygo’s goal became the winning goal.
In the second half of the second half, Eder Militao scored a goal to widen the gap to Brazil to 3-1, and Vinicius scored a penalty goal in the 43rd minute of the second half to seal the victory.
