Super Eagles players’ reacts after draw

Super Eagles played an impressive and entertaining 1-1 draw with Brazil in a friendly encounter at the Singapore National Stadium on Sunday.

Aribo put the team ahead in the 35th minute but Brazil equalized shortly after the break when Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro found the back of the net from close range.

It ended in a stalemate as both sides couldn’t grab the winning goal despite creating so many opportunities.

Nigeria players were happy with their performance against the five-time World Cup winners despite their inability to hold on to their lead.

The players took to their Twitter accounts to share their thoughts on their performance and the outcome of the game.

Super Eagles stand-in captain, William Troost-Ekong wrote on his Twitter handle:

” ?? Great fight from the boys to get the draw against Brazil tonight. #NaijaSpirit.
