Brazil will play Spain in a friendly in March next year at the Bernabeu as part of an anti-racism campaign in support of mercurial Real Madrid winger Vinicius JR.

Vinicius was the target of racist abuse multiple times in Spain in the just concluded season while playing for the Los Blancos.

The President of the Spanish Football Association Luis Rubiales said there is no place for racist insults in their football.

Rubiales and Brazilian FA CBF counterpart Ednaldo Rodrigues launched their anti-racism campaign under the slogan One Skin.

Rodriguez stated further that it was important to understand that harder punishment needs to be applied in cases of racism by the football authorities, arguing that fines are not enough.
