Nigerian football fans are buzzing on Twitter after the Super Eagles played a 1-1 draw against Brazil in an international friendly in Singapore.

The West Africans were able to hold their own against the star-studded reigning Copa American Champions.

Glasgow Rangers midfielder, Joe Aribo, continued his good form this season when he opened the scoring for Nigeria with a well-taken goal on 35 minutes.

But the South Americans drew level early in the second half through Real Madrid star, Casemiro. The midfield enforcer poked home from close range after his teammate's header had struck the woodwork.

The Brazilians pushed for another goal as they sort for a first win in four games but Gernot Rohr's men stood firm to get their best result against the five-time world champions.

Following the game, Nigerians took to the social media platform, Twitter, to appreciate the team for their efforts.
