Brazil vs Nigeria: Samba Boys coach singles out Iwobi

Brazil file out against Nigeria in an international friendly on Sunday and assistant coach Cleber Xavier has singled out one man to be wary of.

That man is Everton winger Alex Iwobi.

“At Nigeria, Iwobi plays more of an inside role as a second striker than at Everton,” Xavier told the BBC.

“He is the link in the counter-attack, drags opponents out of position and infiltrates well in the box.

“Nigeria defend less than Senegal. The Senegalese are more about positioning with Gueye marking strongly.”

Nigeria’s only previous meeting with the Selecao also came in 2003, when goals from Gil, Luis Fabiano and Adriano Leite resulted in a 0-3 defeat for the Super Eagles in Abuja.
