South American Giants Brazil To Face Super Eagles In October

Published

on

South American giants Brazil will play two international friendlies at the National Stadium next month, its football federation announced on its official website on Tuesday (Sep 17).

Five-time World Cup winners Brazil is billed to square up against Nigeria and Senegal between October 10 and 13.

Singapore’s National Stadium will play host to the two international friendly games, as Neymar and colleagues confront Senegal on October 10 before trading tackles with the Super Eagles three days later.

This is the second time Brazil will play at the Singapore Sports Hub; they beat Japan 4-0 in the first A international held there in 2014, with Neymar scoring all four goals.

In 2008, the Brazilian Olympic team played a Singapore selection at the old National Stadium as part of their warm-up ahead of Beijing 2008. The visitors won 3-0.

Confirming this on the Brazilian Football Confederation website, National team coordinator Juninho Paulista said,

We chose two of the best African teams because they are high-level confrontations and the Brazilian national team has had few encounters (with them) in recent years.

“It was a wish of the technical commission, so we went after these opponents.”
