Nigeria Will Play Its Second-Ever Friendly Against Brazil This October
Will the Super Eagles avenge the 3-0 loss they suffered in 2003?
It has been exactly one week since Nigeria took on Ukraine in an international friendly that ended 2-2. While the Super Eagles are still blowing off steam, it has just been confirmed that they have another high-profile friendly coming up, and this time it will be against Brazil.
The announcement was confirmed by the Brazil Football Confederation in a statement released yesterday. By taking on Nigeria, after their third-place finish at the 2019 AFCON, the Brazil team is hoping to get in shape for the South American zone's 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Back in 2003, Brazil and Nigeria met for a friendly that ended 3-0 in favour of the South Americans. Now, not only will the Super Eagles be preparing for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers through this second meeting, but they will also be looking to revenge that 16-year-old loss they suffered.
The friendly is set to take place at the National Stadium of Singapore on October 13.
