Super Eagles hold Brazil in Singapore

The Super Eagles of Nigeria this Sunday held the Brazilian team to a draw in Singapore.

Joe Aribo gifted the Nigerian team with the lead in the 34th minute when Moses Simon had controlled Victor Osimhen’s cross and spotted Aribo, who scored his second international goal for Nigeria.

Casemiro almost single-handedly completed the comeback from Coutinho’s corner before substitute Richarlison turned a chance the wrong side of the upright.

It was on a sad note that the Nigerian goalkeeper Francis Uzoho had to be taken off on a stretcher after landing awkwardly while attempting to thwart the Casemiro chance.

With a substitute goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye made his first appearance for the Eagles who held on for a creditable draw after Semi Ajayi blocked a meek Coutinho finish at close range in the closing stages.

The draw sees Brazil now failing to win a match in their past four outings with the major concern from the Seleção perspective being Neymar limping off in the 12th minute of the action.  

Here are some of the highlights of the match .
