Brazil's national men's football team, the Selecao, held their first training sessions on Monday ahead of the international friendly against Nigeria in Singapore.

The sessions, which were mostly done with the ball, were held at the Singapore National Stadium, Kallang, with world stars like PSG's Neymar. Coutinho who joined Bayern Munich from Barcelona this summer, and Liverpool striker, Firminho, took part in the sessions.

Other notable football stars who have joined up with the team for the international friendlies against African opponents, include Senegal and Nigeria, Fabinho (Liverpool), Eder Militao (Real Madrid), Richarlison (Everton), Dani Alves (Sao Paulo), Casemiro (Brazil), Lucas Paqueta (AC Milan) and Neymar's PSG teammates, Thiago Silva and Marquinhos.

The Selecao will square up against the Teranga Lions on Thursday, October 10, before going up against the Super Eagles three days later at the same venue. Both games will kick off at 1 pm Nigerian time.

Nigeria will play Brazil for the first time since the last meeting between both sides 16 years ago which was a 3-0 defeat in the opening game at the Abuja national stadium.
