Super Eagles Hold Brazil In Singapore

The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday afternoon drew 1-1 against Brazil in Singapore.

Joe Aribo scored the first goal of the game in the 34th minute to gift the Super Eagles the lead Moses Simon had controlled Victor Osimhen’s cross and spotted the late-arriving Aribo, who scored, doubling his international account after dancing through Marquinhos’ weak challenge.

The defender went some way to making amends when his header from a Dani Alves cross came back off the woodwork and dropped for Casemiro to sweep home.

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

Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho had to be taken off on a stretcher after landing awkwardly while attempting to thwart the Casemiro chance.

But his absence failed to hinder the Super Eagles, who held on for a creditable draw after Semi Ajayi blocked a meek Coutinho finish at close range in the closing stages.
