'This is more than a friendly' – Kanu charges Nigeria ahead of Brazil clash

Ahead of Sunday’s international friendly against the Selecao, the Super Eagles great has tasked Gernot Rohr’s men to gun for victory

Nwankwo Kanu has labelled Sunday’s clash between Brazil and Nigeria “more than a friendly” as both teams battle for supremacy in Singapore.

These heavyweights will be meeting for the second time ever, having previously met in 2003 when the South Americans triumphed 3-0 in Abuja.

Prior to the match, Brazil assistant coach Cleber Xavier indicated the encounter will only help the Selecao prepare for their World Cup qualification campaign, but Kanu made no effort to downplay how big the match will be.
