Super Eagles of Nigeria to Take on Brazil in a Friendly Match in Singapore
The Super Eagles of Nigeria will on Sunday, October 13 face Brazil in a friendly game at the National Stadium of Singapore.
Shortly after the country’s 2-2 draw with Ukraine in Dnipro, German tactician Gernot Rohr made a request they should at least play another African nation to prepare for November’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with Benin Republic and Lesotho.
“Now it’s time to focus on the Afcon qualifiers. The game against Ukraine has gone and the boys did very well in my opinion.
“Next month we have two possible windows and I think it will be good for us to have an African opponent because of the qualifiers in November.”
The Brazilian national team will also face Senegal three days before the friendly game in Nigeria.
Nigeria lost 3-0 to the South Americans in their last meeting at the National Stadium in Abuja.
