Brazil coach Tite has blasted his boys for their showing against Senegal in a friendly clash on Thursday and urged them to go all out against Nigeria.

Concise News reports that Nigeria and Brazil will take on each other in a friendly clash on Sunday, October 13 at the Singapore National Stadium.

The South Americans had played a 1-1 draw with Senegal in their last clash meaning they have been winless in their last four games.

And Tite is not happy with his boys, urging them to step up and claim the win when they face Nigeria on Sunday,

“We were below what we can do. The squad played less than what it can play,” Tite said at his post-Senegal match news conference.

“It was less competitive than what it can be. The squad can give more than this. This wasn’t a good game.

“We need to get results. When we don’t, criticism emerges and I have to be mature enough to absorb it.”

Brazil played a 4-4-2 formation – with Neymar and Liverpool’s Firmino the strikers upfront – against Senegal.

Tite has noted that he wants to use the same formation when they take on the the 2013 African champions.

When asked about Neymar’s showing against Senegal, he noted that the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward is still getting used to playing regularly again having been out injured.

“He is getting back to his normal patterns,” he said. “We are also making adjustments for him in the 4-4-2 system, as we’re doing within the whole team.”

Nigeria will be looking for their first-ever win over the Selecao who defeated them 0-3 in a friendly in 2003.
