Torino defender Ola Aina is a doubt for Nigeria’s friendly against Brazil on October 13, according to reports.

Aina, 23, called to inform the Head coach Gernot Rohr of his intentions, but the reasons are still unknown, according to sources.


It’s believed that Nigeria Football Federation are unlikely to agree to his pleads, as it’s now difficult for them to call up a replacement.


It could be recalled that winger Samuel Kalu and defender Kenneth Omeruo has pulled out of the game due to injury .


Aina, who has made ten appearances for Torino this season has become a regular in the Super Eagles team lately, after switching allegiance to Nigeria from England.


Meanwhile, the Super Eagles squad will meet up at the Fairmont Hotel on Wednesday ahead of their first training session.
