Nigeria and Arsenal legend Kanu Nwankwo said the Super Eagles are under pressure to give a good performance when they meet Brazil for their much talked about match in Singapore.

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. And there are just a few players coming in batches this time round. He has already scored two goals and says he's trying to get forward more and more.

Moses, who is now on loan at French Ligue 1 side, Nantes, believes Olayinka will not disappoint Nigeria, adding that the Slavia Prague star is a good player. Nine players arrived earlier in the day at the JW Marriot South Beach Hotel, where the team is staying in the Asian country.

The 90-minute workout with 11 players resembled more of a light recovery session to shake off the jet lag, as they broke into little rondo-playing cliques such as the Liverpool gang of Firmino, Fabinho and former playmaker Coutinho, and the PSG group of Neymar, Silva, Marquinhos and former right-back Alves.

While Richarlison went straight into the hotel, the Reds duo stopped to spend some time with the fans.

"I don't think people will really appreciate the boys if they lost in a friendly game, that's how it is here".
