Super Eagles are under pressure to perform against Brazil - Kanu

The Nigerian delegation for the eagerly anticipated global friendly between Super Eagles and Brazil are yet to be granted entry visas into Singapore barely four days to the game, The PUNCH reports.

Stepping out of a minivan after his compatriots and PSG colleagues Marquinhos and Thiago Silva, the 27-year-old Neymar, who wore a black cap, white T-shirt, khaki trousers, as well as diamond-studded necklace and earrings, looked bleary-eyed as he scanned his surroundings.

Neymar who was cheered by the Brazil fans in Kallang, also took time to sign autographs for his admirers.

On Brazil's last visit to the Republic in 2014 for an exhibition against Japan, Neymar scored all four goals in the 4-0 win in front of more than 50,000 fans at the National Stadium. And there are just a few players coming in batches this time round.
