Neymar injured as Brazil are held to a 1-1 draw by Nigeria in Singapore

                                   The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday afternoon held the Seleccao national team of Brazil to a 1-1 draw in front of tens of thousands of fans in Singapore's national stadium.                    The Super Eagles were without first team players Oghnekaro Etebo,  Keneth Omeruo and Samuel Kalu while Brazil were without Liverpool keeper Allison Becker .                       Nigeria first took the lead on the counter attack with Glasgow Rangers of Scotland striker Aribo quick to blast through in the Brazil 18 yard box in the 35th minute to the surprise of neutral fans who expected a stroll for the Brazilian team even after star player Neymar Jr walked off the field in the 12th minute with a suspected foot injury. Brazil then levelled after the break through Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro who blasted a rebound after Maquinhos had headed off the woodwork during a spell of pressure against the African team. The match ended as a draw with both teams reshuffling the line-up and Nigeria will surely see this as a confidence builder after the 2-2 draw against Ukraine last time around.  More photos below.       The post Neymar injured as Brazil are held to a 1-1 draw by Nigeria in Singapore appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
