Brazil are still searching for their first win after their Copa America triumph following a 1-1 draw with Nigeria in yesterday’s international friendly in Singapore.
The five-time world champions avoided defeat when Real Madrid defensive midfielder Casemiro cancelled out a 35th minute opener from Glasgow Rangers star Joe Aribo.
The Brazil number 5 was impressed with the physical qualities of the Nigeria players and believes they played a good second half against the three-time African champions after scoring the equaliser.
”Speaking of results, it is never favourable. When it comes to Brazil, we always want to seek victory,” Casemiro was quoted as saying.
”But within what we were presenting, today the answer was very good. The second half was good, against a physically strong team.
”The result is not good, but no doubt the second half was good, yes.”
