Brazil v Nigeria Friendly: Adepoju begs Nigerians to allow Super Eagles sustain winning tempo

The Eagles played very well just like they did against the Ukraine team. Talking about the quality in the team, football is changing all over the world.“There is no almighty Brazil again because teams are getting stronger all over the world. Talking about the Eagles, they really played well on Sunday.“The quality is what they should build on toward other big games; we need to get things in perspective. The players are professionals, so, we don’t need to compare them with the class of 1994.“The team needs to win more games and tournament, they are on the right track and we should all encourage them,” he said. Tags: BrazilGENORT ROHRMutiu AdepojuSuper Eagleslast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Suarez agrees Atletico terms Bale completes Tottenham return from Real Madrid Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Atletico Madrid made it three La Liga wins in a row by beating Levante 2-1 at home on Saturday. The victory took the capital side up to third in the standings following an action-packed game in which three goals were scored in the space of five minutes. Argentine forward Angel Correa gave the home side the lead in the 13th minute. Kieran Trippier took the Levante defence by surprise by volleying a chipped pass from Thomas Partey towards Correa. The visitors responded three minutes later with a volley of their own from striker Roger Marti, which flummoxed Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak at his near post. But Diego Simeone’s side regained the lead 60 seconds later with a header from defender Felipe. Atletico Madrid controlled most of the second half but ceded two chances to Enis Bardhi. He was denied on both occasions by superb saves from Oblak, the latter of which came deep in stoppage time. The victory took Atletico Madrid to 35 points after 19 games, level with fourth-placed Sevilla who were held 1-1 at home to Athletic Bilbao on Friday. Real Madrid lead the standings with 40 points, ahead of FC Barcelona’s visit to Espanyol later in the day.
