A “special” match, a prestigious meeting, “a taste of the World Cup”… The players of the Tunisian selection awaited this evening at the Parc des Princes with excessive impatience, like Youssef Msakni. Hit in the knee in his Qatari Championship on September 13, the 31-year-old striker accelerated his return, and his performance on Tuesday suffered. Like his comrades, he was overwhelmed by the Brazilian vigor and the emotional context, the inexhaustible Laidouni conceded a penalty kick (28th), the experienced Bronn foolishly let go of Neymar and was expelled (42nd). “There was a very nice atmosphere. But we may have been too aggressive, we lost our nerves, ”blows midfielder Ellyes Skhiri. Dylan Bronn was sent off in the 42nd minute by Mr Buquet. (P.Lahalle/L’Equipe) The Brazilian anthem whistled The Tunisians, the French team’s third opponents at the World Cup on November 30, were outclassed in front of nearly 48,000 spectators, largely won over to their cause and arrived very early at the stadium. Their opponents were whistled during a quick warm-up, and the Brazilian anthem was booed. Some players of the Seleçao seemed annoyed, but this kind of atmosphere, usual in South America, hardly fazes them. The Tunisian public was inflamed by the slightest start to action by their darlings, starting with the goalkeeper’s clearances. Smoke bombs were lit, and the crowd exploded on Talbi’s equalizer (18th). A quickly forgotten climax: the Brazilians took over the match on their own in the next minute. Richarlison targeted by a banana, a “gesture from another era” for Thiago Silva With lasers, some tried to disrupt the Brazilians (Alisson in his area, Neymar on set pieces), and the referee asked the speaker to intervene in the first period. Richarlison was targeted after his goal in the 19th, during his celebration, the Auriverde Federation evoking “a racist banana throw”. If at the time, the players did not realize anything, Thiago Silva regretted after the match a “gesture from another era”. Bottles, cups, lighters landed on the lawn in the second half, when Neymar approached to take corners. An early fight also took place in the bays, between Tunisian supporters, it seems, in the last minutes. No incident was noted at the final whistle.
