Nigeria hold Brazil to tough draw as Neymar picks up yet another injury

Odiase Osayande



The Super Eagles of Nigeria were forced to a 1-1 draw in their international friendly match against Brazil on Sunday.

The Eagles took the lead against the run
of play with Glasgow Rangers striker Aribo quick to react in the Brazil box lashing home in the 35th minute as Marquinhos dawdled.

Brazil were soon level shortly after the interval when Casemiro stabbed home the rebound after Maquinhos had headed off the woodwork.

The draw sees Brazil now failing to win a
match in their past four outings with the major concern from the Seleção perspective being Neymar limping off in the 12 th minute of the action.
