Antonio Carlos Nunes, the President of the Brazilian Football Federation, CBF, says that Nigeria’s U17, U20, U23 and Super Eagles national teams are the best in Africa.
Nunes said this while presenting a souvenir to the Nigeria Football Federation during the international friendly between both countries on Thursday night where Nigeria’s under 23 team beat Brazil 1-0.
“For us in Brazil and South America, we see the national teams from Nigeria as the best in Africa, and as such playing host to your team who are the champions of Africa is not only an honor but a thing of pride.
“And so it is a thing of joy that your federation accepted to play us,” said Antonio Nunes.
The Nigeria delegation, made up of nine players and six officials, will arrive back in Lagos, Nigeria on today.
