Super Eagles full-back Ola Aina will miss the dream opportunity to play against the mighty Brazil.
Breaking news out of the Super Eagles camp report that Aina has suffered a freak accident, which bizarrely happened yesterday during the player’s 23rd birthday. The shocking report was posted via the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) Twitter account this morning.
The NFF vaguely described Aina’s blow as a ‘domestic accident.’ “Just in: Torino of Italy wing-back Ola Aina is out of Sunday's international friendly against Brazil. He picked up an injury after a domestic accident and will not be available,” posted the NFF.

As far as club football, the Torino defender has had a fairly good start to the Serie A season. Aina made his 10th appearance against Napoli in last Sunday’s 0-0 draw.
Meanwhile, Brazil welcome the Super Eagles to the Singapore national stadium on Sunday afternoon.
