A Rio Olympics warm-up between hosts Brazil and Nigeria will kick off at 11pm Nigerian time today.
Both teams are gearing up for the Rio Olympics in August.
Nigeria’s Dream Team VI, under temporary charge of Fatai Amoo, are expected to cap several new players after an experimental 20-man squad was named for the friendly.
As many as 10 players on the squad have yet to play for the Nigeria at this level.
They include Agboyi Ovboka, Sodiq Popoola, Godswill Ekpolo, Nathan Oduwa and Theophilus Solomon.
Brazil will also host South Africa in another friendly on March 27.
The draw for the Rio Olympics will be staged next month in Brazil.
