Paris Saint-German striker Neymar is happy Brazil avoided the Super Eagles at the Group stage of the 2018 World Cup.
Speaking in France after the draw, the former Barcelona man praised the teams that qualified for the showpiece.
He, however, said the Brazilian side were lucky to avoid the three-time African champions.
“We have to be at our best to get a good result particularly in our first game of the tournament. The teams in our group are difficult to play against,” Neymar said.
“But I am happy that we are not in a group where we have 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.“
