Aina is the third Nigeria player to withdraw from the game after Leganes of Spain defender, Kenneth Omeruo and Girondins Bordeaux of France winger, Samuel Kalu also pulled out due to injuries.
Tyronne Ebuehi and Viv Solomon-Otabor have been named as replacements for the duo, but because of the shortness of the time, Aina may not have a replacement.
The Nigeria vs Brazill friendly will take place at the Singapore National Stadium in Kallang, and will kick off at 1pm Nigeria time.
