Wilfred Ndidi is delighted with the performance of Super Eagles in Sunday’s 1-1 friendly draw against Brazil at the Singapore National Stadium, reports Completesports.com.
Gernot Rohr’s men put up a brave display against the five-time World Champions who wasted a number of chances in the second half.
The Super Eagles took the lead after 35 minutes when Joe Aribo found space in a packed penalty box to rifle in a low shot and grab his second goal in two international appearances.
Brazil equalised three minutes into the second half when Casemiro fired home from close range after he was quickest to react when a Marquinhos header came back off the woodwork.
Casemiro later smacked a header off the bar and Coutinho should have scored a cut back with five minutes remaining but the score remained at 1-1.
Samuel Chukuweze came close to snatching a late winner for the Super Eagles three minutes from time but Ederson saved his shot.
“A good friendly game for Naija🇳🇬 and a fair result against one of the best team in the world …@Uzohof wish you a quick recovery bro 🙏🏾! Thank you singapore ,”Ndidi Tweeted.

Our left full back is very weak.The guy Collins is he the first choice.Please we need to fi d an alternative e player.our right back too played well defensively but modern football requires attacking flair from full backs as well defending.Pls Ebuchi is very good at it.Where is him,we need him at the right back
The sports journalists are a problem to the sport in Nigeria.
Some commentators from a particular radio station in Lagos started castigating Gernot Rohr immediately the match ended saying he is Super Eagles problem.
I began to wonder what they wanted the coach to do.
Many coaches would have given some of these boys a chance. With the usual excuse of they have to be given time. Let them learn the ropes.
We have not been disgraced since he assumed the position as coach of the national team. We have played some big teams and we stood tall against them.
We just played against Brazil. One one the best give in the world, and they couldn’t beat us. They argue that we should have beaten them. So was it Rohr’s fault? Should he have entered into the field of play?
We are talking about good football being displayed by our players yet these immatured semiprofessionals are criticising.we talk about good players being given a chance to showcase their talent in the national team without asking for bribe from them, yet people ate castigating him.
I’m sure these people do not want the progress of our national team.
Maybe they want him to be using the home based players. Those that cannot measure up with the fellow home based of other African countries.
Let us be reasonable in criticism.
Dont you know Rohr’s continual stay at the helm of the national team is denying some of these officials, agents and brown envelop journalist their daily bread…?
They can no longer use marketing of substandard players to earn a decent living for themselves any longer….that’s why there is such a huge media campaign for him to fail.
I was listening to one of the stations online too and one perennial hater of Rohr wast stating categorically even before the game commenced that the least we will loose would be by 3-0…that Brazil would be 2 goals up by the end of the 1st haf already. He spoke with so much confidence you would swear he had watched the match somewhere else before now.
God will continue to put them all to shame. Agents of darkness dem. They sabi themselves, especially the ones on this forum. With all their Bad wishes the team keeps rising and rising and getting better each year….average of 10 places in the ranking annually.
I just pray we can break into the top 30 before this year runs out. Its been a long journey to this point. I checked the log and the likes of Cameroun, DRC, CIV, SA are way way below us….way below us. Thats to show you we have taken our place of respect on the Arican continent and we are beginging to earn recognition from big teams on the world scene too.
Our football is definitely returning to where it was in the days of yore. Anyone who chooses to disagree with that can go and rub ata rodo in his eyes for all I care.
Gernot Rohr is doing well and still the best around for now. Joe Aribo worth 150 million pounds. Maduka okoye did not disappoint as some people expected, this match will definitely boost his confidence. You people should allow the coach to do his job, he knows what he’s doing. Those gold diggers that have coaches or are coach themselves that wants to take over from Rohr should go and start from under 17, 20,23. And prove themselves first. Super eagles job is not for business. Thanks
With the injury to uzoho, I only just wonder who rohn would invite as his replacement, we might yet see another new face goalkeeper to fill the vacuum created by uxoho, that injury for me looks very serious ,it would take a miracle for him to play again this year. Wish him speedy recovery.
It’s also time the coach gets another left back, but our options are slim, Nigeria always have few good left back and I wonder why..
Gernot Rohr is trying everything possible to unearth talents for Nigeria.I don’t mind those indome generation sport analyst so to say.Give this coach 2 more years,Nigeria will be a stronger team.Look at the team average age between 22 and 25yrs and see their coordination.My people lets support our coach
Those sycophants are up again but God will not allow them to succeed. Rohr will take Naija to 2022 world cup and imagine what those boys will do to their opponents.
