Super Eagles are under pressure to perform against Brazil - Kanu

Ex global, Mutiu Adepoju has charged the Super Eagles technical crew to select players capable of holding their own against Brazil ahead of Sunday's worldwide friendly game in Singapore.

Brazil themselves thought they had a penalty when keeper Gomis brought down Jesus inside the box, but the match official did not agree.

Ahead of the grade A friendly, the Eagles will be quartered at the five-star Fairmount hotel in Singapore.

Brazil coach Tite acknowledged that his team's performance was below par against Senegal, the second African team he has faced since he joined in 2016.

Mane played the entire 90 minutes in the game, although that was the only game he will play during the worldwide break. The 27-year-old striker is only one goal behind two-time World Cup victor Ronaldo, who is in second place on Brazil's all-time list of top scorers.
