Exeter City Manager Paul Tisdale expecting stern test against Fluminense
Exeter City Manager Paul Tisdale is expecting a stern test when his side face Fluminese on Sunday.
The game is being held to make the 100th anniversary of Brazil’s first fixture, which was against Exeter, and Tisdale is looking forward to facing a strong opponent.
“I’m expecting a very difficult game,” insisted Tisdale, as reported by the Exeter Express and Echo. “I don’t know what team they are going to pick because it is a friendly and they have got other interests to focus on that day as well, but I’m expecting a highly-talented team.”
Fluminense have a Brasileirão tie against Sao Paulo on the same day, so it is likely that Head Coach Cristóvão Borges will field a reserve side.
