The Selecao have been performing below their usual standards following Copa America success and they will be determined to improve on Sunday

Brazil go head-to-head with Nigeria in Singapore on Sunday looking to bring the October international break to a positive conclusion.

The South American behemoths struggled in their last outing against Senegal, labouring to a 1-1 draw despite taking an early lead through Roberto Firmino and they will be expected to perform better on Sunday.

Tite has brought a more or less full strength squad with him to Southeast Asia, with the like of Neymar and Philippe Coutinho involved, but fringe players will be eager to stake their claim for a starting position.

With the beginning of the World Cup qualification campaign on the horizon next March, the game against Nigeria will be a useful exercise in determining who merits further inclusion en route to Qatar.

Match Preview

Tite was far from happy with the Selecao's performance in their 1-1 draw against Senegal and he is demanding a marked improvement for the game against Nigeria.

"We were below what we can do. The squad played less than what it can play," the Brazil boss said after the stalemate on Thursday.

"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."

The draw means that Brazil are now on a three-game run without tasting victory following their resounding Copa America success during the summer.

As well as struggling to overturn Senegal, the South American champions could only draw with Colombia in September and they lost to Peru, which is far from satisfactory for a team ranked third in the world.

The likes of Neymar, who won his 100th cap on Thursday, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino will be expected to step up a gear as they look to finish the year on a high note.
