The Super Eagles of Nigeria have again been dealt a major blow ahead of Sunday’s prestige friendly against Brazil in Singapore with the withdrawal of Stoke City’s midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo.
Etebo was a late withdrawal on Thursday with Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr opting not to call any more players following the withdrawal of Etebo, and Wednesday’s withdrawal of defender Olaoluwa Aina as a result of injury.
The Franco-German already replaced defender Kenneth Omeruo with Tyronne Ebuehi, while Efosa Solomon-Otabor joined the camp following France –based Samuel Kalu’s unavailability.
Three –time African champions Nigeria now have full capacity in Singapore as they began training sessions on Thursday.
The official training session will take place on Saturday, with the match scheduled to kick off at 1pm Nigeria time on Sunday.
