Former Super Eagles attacker, Henry Nwosu has added his voice to previews of Nigeria’s forthcoming friendly against Brazil in Singapore, with a verdict that the three-time African champions should enter Sunday’s game on the strength of expectations for victory, megasportsarena.com reports.
Although he admitted it will be a tough outing against the five-time FIFA World Cup winners, Nwosu added that the most important thing he wants from the Eagles is for the players to give a good account of themselves and ensure that they play very well.
The former national team captain, who went on to have a short coaching spell with the under-17 squad, Golden Eaglets, added during Mega Sports on Star 101.5 FM, Lagos that the Nigerian players should not give too much respect to The Samba Boys, but wants them to go toe-to-toe against their highly-rated opponents from South America.
He concluded with a submission that, whichever way the pendulum swings on Sunday, the Eagles should just ensure they give a very good account of themselves and leave the stadium with their heads high up, not with another 3-0 loss as they suffered at home against the same team in 2003.
Nwosu retorted: “I will advice that they go into this match with a mission to win. We know that Brazil have a strong history in football, especially at the World Cup, but, that aside, our team should play well. Above all, the players should ensure they give a good account of themselves.”
