The Nigeria News Agency reports that Brazil were held to a 1-1 draw by Senegal on Thursday in Singapore.

“Brazil are a top team, probably the best team in the world, but Senegal gave them a good fight on Thursday.

“We can pick some inspiration from that performance when we play the Brazilians on Sunday.

“It will be tough because they will want to win at least one game against an African team on this tour, but we will also want to take something off them,” he said.

NAN also reports that Sunday’s encounter starts at 8 p.m. Singapore time (1p.m. Nigeria time).(NAN)
