The coach brands his team style of play as total football and insists they will play same way regardless of their opponents attacking threats.
"I'm not a defensive minded coach,we will play the way we know how to play and let the Brazilians worry about us," Garba told
"We respect Brazil as a team blessed with so many attacking potentials but we won't change our style because of that."
Despite the fact that Nigeria has never beaten Brazil at Under-20 level, the Under-17 World Cup winning coach insist records are meant to be broken.
"It's a record that we don't care about since it's there,we have a duty to break it and Insha Allah we will do it," he added.
How the team is expected to start:
Flying Eagles: Joshua Enaholo, Musa Mohammed (c), Mustapha Abdullahi, Zaharadeen Bello, Wilfred Ndidi, Ifeanyi Ifeanyi, Ifeanyi Matthew, Musa Yahaya, Isaac Success, Kelechi Iheanacho, Taiwo Awoniyi
