Super Eagles break out stars Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze will reignite their old rivalry against Brazil defender Eder Militao if they are selected to play against Brazil in an global friendly on Sunday, AOIFootball.com reports. Despite fan unrest, he has started well, with four goals in five games this season.

The draw stretched the Selecao's run without a win to three games, which is the longest such spell since coach Tite took over in 2016.

Mane surged into Brazil territory from his position on the flank and was eventually felled in the area by Marquinhos, allowing Famara Diedhiou to step up and drive a penalty into the bottom left corner.

Firmino opend the scoring after just 10 minutes with a perfectly excuted chip over onrushing Senegal goalkeeper Alfred Gomis, after being played into the area by striker partner Jesus.

A loose touch from Dani Alves' no-look pass enabled Salif Sane to deny Philippe Coutinho a shot at goal, while Mane sent a powerful drive straight at Ederson in Senegal's first real opening.

He then teed up Richarlison whose shot from the edge of the box flashed wide.

Much of the second-half in the energy-sapping conditions was played at a sluggish pace, but Mane went close to an 85th-minute victor when his 20-yard drive crashed against the post.
