The Super Eagles coach has revealed some of his thoughts as his team put finishing touches to their preparations ahead of Sunday’s tough game against Brazil.
Coach Gernot Rohr has charged the Super Eagles to give their all when the team face the Selecao in two days time at the Singapore National Stadium.
Brazil are the current Copa America champions but the Neymar-inspired side could only manage a not-too-impressive 1-1 draw with Senegal on Thursday.
Rohr is however hopeful that that his team can pull off a similar result or better as Nigerians expect nothing less.
“I know Nigerians will want us to beat Brazil or judge us with the game. But my own is that the match is good to prepare their minds and build confidence,” said Rohr.
“You know playing Brazil is a grade-A international friendly match, the boys must give their 100% and we hope for a good result.
“So far the players are in high spirit and everybody is preparing and looking forward to the match,” said Rohr.
Nigeria vs Brazil kicks off by 1pm local time.
