Nigeria to face Brazil in Int’l friendly



Former World champions Brazil is expected to line up a strong squad against Nigeria in the eagerly awaited international friendly fixed for October 13 at the imposing Singapore National Stadium in Kallang.

Though details are sketchy, match organizers and NFF/FIFA licensed match Jairo Pachon of Eurodata Marketing Sportivo E Culturale (otherwise known as Eurodata Sports) informed NationSport that both sides would bring their best players for the prestigious match.

“We just closed the deal with Brazil which is historic for Nigeria, and Brazil would bring all their best players for the match,” Pachon stated.

Incidentally, the Samba Boys are expected to tackle 2019 AFCON runner up Senegal three days before taking on the Super Eagles in a doubleheader against two strong African sides.

“We chose two of the best African teams because they are high-level opponents,” Brazil Football Confederation official Juninho Paulista told the country’s association website. “It was a wish of the technical commission. So we went after these opponents.”

The October 13th friendly match in Singapore would be the second between both countries at full international since Brazil hammered Nigeria 3-0 at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja in 2003.
