Ex international, Mutiu Adepoju has charged the Super Eagles technical crew to select players capable of holding their own against Brazil ahead of Sunday’s international friendly game in Singapore.
It is the first clash between both countries since five-time world champions Brazil hit the Super Eagles 3-0 in a friendly game at the National Stadium, Abuja in June 2003.
In a chat with Soccernet.ng, the ‘headmaster’ as he’s popularly known during his playing days, stated that Gernot Rohr should use the game to bring out the best from the players.
“Any game between Nigeria and Brazil will always be an explosive game,” Adepoju told Soccernet.ng.
“I am expecting nothing but an attacking football from both teams. Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr must select players capable of holding the Samba Boys.
“This is one game Nigerians and the world will be watching even though it’s just a friendly encounter. A scandalous result could damage the morale of the players and affect the image of the team generally.”
