Joe Aribo confirms Super Eagles recall, excited about Brazil friendly
Glasgow Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has confirmed his recall to the Super Eagles ahead of their international friendly against Brazil in October.
The 23-year-old, who made his international debut for the Super Eagles against Ukraine few weeks ago, says it would be a dream come true to play against such a great team as Brazil.
“It’s a very good news to be called up to the Nigeria squad again. I’m happy I was able to do enough in the last game to earn a recall,” Aribo said during a pre-match conference.
“Games don’t come much bigger than Brazil and we know they’ve got a lot of stars like Neymar.
“That’s the type of opponents I want to be playing against and it would be good to swap a jersey with one of those superstars. I’ll see so many stars and I’ll take a moment to realise that’s what I’ve been dreaming of.”
Nigeria will battle Brazil in a test game on October 13 at the Singapore National Stadium.
