Super Eagles and Glasgow Rangers midfielder, Joe Aribo, has said the 1-1 draw by Nigeria’s senior football team against Brazil was a tough game.
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 his official Twitter page, Aribo commended his teammates for holding it down during the game.
He wrote: “Tough game against a top Brazil side! Team put in a shift till the end. Delighted to have got a goal!
“Thank you to all the supporters that came out tonight and also everyone supporting worldwide!”
