Speaking about the October friendly with Brazil, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi said it will be a good outing for the Super Eagles, stating that it is not everyday that you get to Brazil.

Hesaid “We are happy to have sealed this encounter with Brazil, the five-time champions of the world. It is not everyday that you get to Brazil, and I think it is very good for our young team.

“The Nigeria Football Federation must also commend Eurodata Sport, our FIFA –licensed Match Agent, for pulling this off. Having said that, the focus now is on getting an African team for the Super Eagles as a second match for the FIFA window in October, ahead of their 2021 AFCON qualifying matches in November”.
