Brazil vs Nigeria: Mutiu Adepoju reacts to Super Eagles’ 1 – 1 draw in Singapore

Former Super Eagles’ midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju, has said the 1-1 draw by Nigeria’s senior football team against Brazil feels like a win because of their impressive showing during the match.

The Super Eagles held the five-time world champions to a stalemate in an international friendly in Singapore on Sunday. 

Joe Aribo had put the Super Eagles in front in the 35th minute with a fine finish from close range before Casemiro’s second-half strike saved the South Americans from a shock defeat.

The draw is the best result the Nigeria has secured against the five-time world champions, after losing 3-0 in their last encounter in 2003.

On the back of the great play by the Eagles, Adepoju wrote on his Twitter page: “Well-done brave SuperEagles!

“This draw looks like a win and I believe this is a sign of good things to come for our senior national team.

“Also, there are lots of lessons to take home against Brazil and that is very important. #BRANGA ”
