Former Super Eagles midfielder Mutiu Adepoju has hailed the team for their impressive performance in Sunday’s friendly 1-1 draw against five-time world champions, Brazil, reports Completesports.com.
Joe Aribo put the Super Eagles ahead in the first half before Casemiro levelled for the South Americans three minutes after the break.
Adepoju also believes the future is bright for the West Africans following their impressive performance in the game.
“Well-done brave @NGSuperEagles! 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 🦅,”Adepoju tweeted.
The Super Eagles will now shift attention to next month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixtures against Benin and Lesotho.
Gernot Rohr’s men came third at the 2019 AFCON finals in Egypt.
