Thiago Silva goe sinto the book for a bad foul on Aribo! In which both players end up hurt!

Brazil are back in the game!! Casemiro is the goalscorer here! The goal occurred from a corner kick, which landed on Marquinhos' head, but his shot hit the bar and deflected back out for Casemiro, who just slotted the ball calmly in the back of the net!! Brazil 1-1 Nigeria

The second half is underway!
2 minutes of added time is over and Nigeria go into the half time in the lead! Brazil shocked and struggle to make any of their chances count and although they have had the most possession, Nigeria have been more clinical on the finish. An exciting second half to come!
Coutinho aims straight for goal and his powerful shot skims just past the post and goes wide! Good chance for Brazil
Casemiro goes down as Simon performs a dangerous challenge on his knees. Free kick for Brazil about 30 yards out of the box. Can they get back in the game here?
Jesus kicks the ball across the goal line, but it is cleared for a Brazil corner
Nigeria have a bit more confidence now, as they are looking to double their lead, their recent chance, however, Ederson managed to deal with easily.
Aribo is the one who gets the goal, following a great pass form Simon, which sees Aribo receive the ball and run through the defenders in the box and confidently slot the ball in the back of the net! What a shock for Brazil!
Brazil coming into the game more now, they make a good run up fromt he centre of the pitch, Firmino receives the ball, but shoots right at Ozoho, the ball rolls away from him and Brazil try to go for the defelction but the keeper manages to get to it just in time!

Nigeria looking strong in this game now, as they are having a lot of action in their attacking box! Brazil can't just run all over them like they probably thought they would!
Marquinhos got lucky there as he nearly put the ball in his own net! Iwobi crossed the ball in for Troost-Ekong, but Marquinhos gets to it first and tries to clear, with the ball hitting the netting at the top of the net. Lucky there for Brazil!
Everton has a shot, as the ball is crossed i for him, but he cannot quite control it well and heads it wide. No problem for the Nigeria keeper there! Nigeria now on the counter
Early sub for Brazil! Neymar comes off and is replaced by Coutinho, it appears that Neymar may have picked up a slight injury (muscle)! Big blow for Brazil and the striker himself, who has just returned from injury.
Nigeria looking for opportunities to get up and shoot now, as they are looking rather threatening in the limited times that they have the ball! Brazil having most possession here!
