Brazilian star, Neymar has revealed that he is “happy” Brazil avoided all five African teams especially the Super Eagles, Nigeria in the World Cup group stages.
The Selecao will slug it out with Serbia, Coasta Rica and Switzerland in Group E of the global showpiece as they aim to erase memories of their 2014 outing that ended awfully.
And the PSG star who admitted they got tough oppositions , believes ‘African teams like Nigeria’ would have been an absolute nightmare.
“I am happy it was not a group where we had 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.”
However, the Super Eagles were handed the Selecao eternal rivals, Argentina for the fifth time in the finals while Croatia and debutant Iceland complete the Group D setup.
