It's no different with me.

"And for me, it's always tough when Nigeria and Brazil play each other, whoever will represent us should know it's not a friendly game".

Arthur said the players, at this professional level, are "well prepared" to "control loads and flight hours" and defended the technical committee led by coach Adenor Leonardo Bacchi "Tite".

To represent the Selecao are players whose club commitment ended on Saturday while the rest who played for their respective clubs late yesterday will start their trip to the Far East this morning.

The physical wear and tear produced by the Federation Internationale de Football Association friendlies, in which the big European clubs like Barcelona have a lot of global players traveling, in some cases, great distances, has become a recurring theme in the appearances of Tite's pupils.

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.

Sales manager Dominic Teng, 31, said: "I had hoped Firmino would stay longer but he did look exhausted and it is OK because both he and Fabinho were very accommodating".

"I'm anxious about that. I'm working hard, giving my all to get that goal as soon as possible".

"While I will be at the Brazil-Senegal game to watch and support them, I hope the Liverpool players don't get too many minutes because they have a big league match against Manchester United on Oct 20".
