How Super Eagles may Line-up vs Brazil without Ola Aina

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr will be forced into another tactical switch ahead of the high profile international friendly between Brazil and Nigeria.

Torino wing-back Olaoluwa Aina is the latest player to withdraw after a domestic accident.

The 23-year-old is certainly a starter following the team smart football in the 2-2 draw with Ukraine last month.

Francis Uzoho will be protected by Jamilu Collins, Stand-in skipper William Troost-Ekong, West Brom defensive shield Semi Ajayi and Leganes newest recruit, Chidozie Awaziem who may be chosen ahead of more traditional full backs Shehu Abdullahi and Tyronne Ebuehi based on his Africa Cup of Nations contribution.

Reliable Wilfred Ndidi will pivot the midfield alongside Oghenekaro Etebo while Rangers' Joe Aribo takes responsibility from the arrow.

Attacking trio will have Yellow Submarine's Samuel Chukwueze, in-form Victor Osimhen and Everton attacker, Alex Iwobi.
