Samuel Kalu, Super Eagles and Bordeaux striker have been ruled out of the international friendly between Nigeria and Brazil billed to hold on October 13.
The winger sustained a thigh muscle injury during training on Friday which caused him to miss his team’s 3-1 win away to Toulouse in the Ligue 1 on Saturday.
He already has eight Ligue 1 appearances this season for the French club, with one goal and one assist to his name.
The Super Eagles coach, however, allowed Joe Aribo to replace the injured player.
Aribo will join the Super Eagles squad in Singapore on Wednesday.
