'Germany Didn't Want To Play Against Us'- Brazil Coach Asked About Quality Of Super Eagles
Brazil coach Tite was questioned about the quality of the two African countries his side will face in the next FIFA window during his squad announcement on Friday.

The former Corinthians manager argued that it was difficult arranging friendly games with top countries and added that Germany eventually pulled out of a proposed friendly.

While Brazil are ranked third in the world in the latest FIFA ranking, their next two opponents Senegal and Nigeria are outside the top fifteen globally.

Speaking to reporters, Tite said : ''That's a calendar issue. We just can't change it. We get in touch with all the best national squads. And, when we can't play against them, it's because we've tried but they didn't want to play against us.

"Can I give Germany [as an] example? Germany proposed us a date. We said yes. Then they proposed another day.

''We said yes again. Then they informed us that they didn't want to play anymore. I'm giving you information".

The Selecao thrashed the Super Eagles 3-0 in a friendly back in 2003, with goals from Gil, Luis Fabiano and Adriano.
