Neymar closes on Pele record as Brazil thumps Tunisia

Richarlison scored the Selecao's second goal in a 5-1 win at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday (AEST).

But the victory in Brazil's final match before the FIFA World Cup was soured by reports of a racist gesture aimed at the Tottenham forward.

Video footage appeared to show a banana land near Richarlison as he celebrated his goal, and the CBF confirmed the incident on social media.

"Unfortunately, after the goal, a banana was thrown on the pitch towards Richarlison, scorer of the second Brazilian goal," a short statement read.

"The CBF reinforces its position to combat racism and repudiates any prejudiced manifestation."
