Brazil 1-1 Nigeria: Tite pleased with performance

Brazil coach Tite is pleased his side did not lose the international friendly played against Nigeria on Sunday.

Brazil came from behind to force a 1-1 draw, as the South Americans failed to win their two friendly matches against African opposition.

Tite would welcome criticism as he believes now is the time to make mistakes.

“Criticism is inevitable. We are adjusting our team and trying to develop new systems. We are preparing for competition,” Tite stated at the post-match conference.

“Now is the time to make mistakes but when we play in official competitions, we need to make zero mistakes.”

The Super Eagles took a deserved 35th-minute lead when Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo weaved past Marquinhos to slam a shot beyond Ederson for his second international goal in as many games.

Tite’s men equalized three minutes after the breakthrough Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro.

The five-time world champions have now gone four matches without a win.
