Brazil captain, Neymar has expressed his joy
of not having to face Nigeria, nay any African
team during the group stage of the 2018 FIFA
World Cup in Russia.

While giving his take on the draw, which saw
Brazil grouped alongside Serbia, Costa Rica
and Switzerland in group E, the PSG forward
sad it was a huge relief that the Brazilians
would not have to deal with the fast pace and
strong physical play of the Nigerians, who are
grouped alongside Argentina, Croatia and
Iceland in group D

Speaking to the media in France, Neymar
named Nigeria as one of the teams in Africa
he is happy to avoid while praising the
strength of the other teams in their group.

“ We have to be at our best to get a good
result particularly in our first game of the
tournament. The teams in our group are
difficult to play against”, Neymar said.

“ But I am happy that we are not in a group
where we have to play against African teams
like Nigeria. They run a lot and are very
physical in their approach. We are no doubt
still up against strong sides at the World Cup
