Super Eagles to face Brazil in international friendly

By Toby Prince

The Brazilian FA has confirmed an international friendly between its national team and the Super Eagles.

The Selecao will face the African side in the next international break in October.

They will also face fellow West Africans, Senegal.

“The Brazilian team will play against Senegal and Nigeria at the National Stadium of Singapore, on the 10th and 13th,” a statement on Tuesday said.

“Senegal and Nigeria, two of Africa’s main forces today, will be the opponents of the Brazilian National Team at the October FIFA Dates. The National Stadium of Singapore reopened in 2014 with a capacity of 55,000 fans, will be the venue of the clashes scheduled for the 10th and 13th, at 8 pm local time (9 am Brasilia).

“On October 10, 2019, the Brazilian National Team will play their first-ever game against Senegal. Best African team in the FIFA Ranking, Senegalese are in the 20th position of the classification.

“Three days later, on October 13, Brazil and Nigeria (33rd in the FIFA Ranking) face off on the same stage. It will only be the second major squad match against the Nigerians. The first was in 2003, with a 3-0 Brazilian victory in Abuja, the Nigerian capital. Gil, Luís Fabiano and Adriano scored the goals of the triumph.

“The opposing teams come from good results in 2019. Senegal and Nigeria finished second and third respectively in the June and July African Cup of Nations. The choice is in line with the concept established between the president of the organization and the Brazilian National Technical Commission, to play against top 50 opponents of the FIFA ranking whenever possible.

” We chose two of the best African teams because they are high-level confrontations and against a school that the Brazilian National Team has had few encounters in recent years. It was a wish of the Technical Commission, so we went after these opponents – commented the Coordinator of the Team, Juninho Paulista.”
