Brazil edged Guinea 4-1 in a friendly on Saturday with Joelinton, Rodrygo, Eder Militao and Vinicius Junior scoring for the five-time world champions, who wore an all-black kit at half time to promote an anti-racism campaign.
It was the first of Brazil’s two friendlies against African countries in support of Real Madrid striker Vinicius who was racially abused in a La Liga match in Valencia in May, and the tenth time that similar incidents have been reported by La Liga.
Newcastle United midfielder Joelinton, who made his international debut, opened the scoring in the 26th minute with a shot from close range from a rebound. Rodrygo added the second five minutes later with a powerful shot.
Gerasi Serho took advantage of the dispersion of the Brazilian defense to reduce the gap for Guinea with a header, but Milita strengthened Brazil’s lead with a header, completing the fourth goal from the penalty spot, Vinicius, four minutes before the end.
