Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has made a slight adjustment to his team for the October 13 friendly against the national team of Brazil.

The Franco-German tactician has extended an invitation to Tryonee Ebuehi who has been asked to replace Kenneth Omeruo who is understood to be injured.

Before now, Rohr had picked in-form Granada of Spain midfielder Ramon Azeez and Czech –based forward Peter Olayinka in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the prestige friendly with five-time world champions Brazil in Singapore on Sunday, 13th October.

Azeez scored against Barcelona last weekend as Granada beat the Spanish champions 2-0 in La Liga while Olayinka became the first Nigerian to score on his Champions League debut in 15 years when he scored for Slavia Prague in a 1-1 draw with Inter Milan last week.

The Returnees

With Omeruo now out, the defenders that would be doing the hard work against the skillful Brazilians would be Abdullahi Shehu and Chidozie Awaziem back from injury, otherwise, the squad is largely unchanged from the side that was forced to a 2-2 draw by Ukraine in Dnipro on 10th September.

Goalkeepers Francis Uzoho, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, and Maduka Okoye are also retained, England –based midfielder Wilfred Ndidi also returns after missing the Ukraine encounter with an injury.

Alex Iwobi, Oghenekaro Etebo, and Scotland –based Joseph Ayodele-Aribo, who scored on his debut against Ukraine, are all back in midfield, with Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, Moses Simon, Samuel Kalu, Paul Onuachu and Emmanuel Dennis all back in the frontline.
