Globo create interactive game of Cruzeiro season – including racist abuse of midfielder Tinga

Brazilian site Globo Esporte have created an interactive game for fans of back-to-back Brazilian champions Cruzeiro who want to see their journey through the season – and rather controversially included the racist abuse of midfielder Tinga.

The racist abuse occurred when Cruzeiro were playing away in Peru in the Copa Libertadores against Real Garcilaso.

The deplorable incident provoked outrage from Brazil where Tinga received widespread support and the Peruvian fans behind the chanting were condemned.

It was a big talking point in their season but should Globo have included it in this game? With bananas being chucked off a stand, it seems a bit too light-hearted to be included in this animation. However, after you pass that stage you see banners that condemn racism.

You can play the game by clicking here and you can see the video of the original incident in the video below.
