Nigeria will have to do without Stoke City midfielder Peter Etebo for their friendly international with Brazil on Sunday after he did not travel with the squad to Singapore.

Etobo had an unspecified issue obtaining a visa and so will not be part of the group to take on the South Americans.

It is a further blow for coach Gernot Rohr, who has already lost Kenneth Omeruo, Ola Aina and Samuel Kalu to injury.

No replacement will be called into the3 squad and so Rohr will work with the 21 players he has in Singapore.

Brazil drew 1-1 with Senegal at the same venue on Thursday, a match the Super Eagles players attended.
