The stage is set, the Super Eagles of Nigeria are ready to tackle the Seleção of Brazil in Sunday’s highly-anticipated friendly encounter at the Singapore National Stadium.

21 Nigerian players are presently in Singapore under the technical guidance of Gernot Rohr in preparations for the Brazil tie later on Sunday afternoon in what has been tagged ‘more than just a friendly’.

Coach Tite’s side are the overwhelming favourites, with the five-time world champions expected to pick an easy win over a largely inexperienced Nigeria team.

However, despite not boasting an array of world class talents like their South American counterparts, the Super Eagles are three-time African champions and possess a few stars who can help shock an underwhelming opponent.

Both teams are known for their high physical strengths and fans should be expecting more of a physical battle during the encounter.

With Ndidi’s return into the team coupled with Esiti’s physical presence, Rohr’s men are likely to have an edge over their opponents.
