Brazil assistant coach Cleber Xavier feels Everton forward Alex Iwobi is the man to watch out for when his team faces Nigeria in an international friendly match the National Stadium in Kallang, Singapore on Sunday.

The two sides will be meeting for the second time ever, having previously played against each other in 2003 when Brazil won 3-0 in Abuja.

Nigeria arrive in Singapore with in-form forwards Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis of Club Brugge and Lille’s Victor Osimhen, but Tite’s assistant coach Xavier has picked Iwobi as Nigeria’s danger man.

“These two friendlies and the two November friendlies will allow us to test new players and to adjust and tweak some tactical details in attack and defence.

“We did this in the preparation for the Copa America. We succeeded in the objective of winning and did so unbeaten.”
