Kalu out of Eagles clash with Brazil

Bordeaux forward Samuel Kalu has been ruled out of Nigeria’s international friendly against Brazil on the 13th of October, Sports Extra reports.

The Nigeria international copped a thigh muscle injury on Friday in training which made him miss his team’s 3-1 win away to Toulouse in the Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Kalu has made eight Ligue 1 appearances this season for Bordeaux scoring one goal and providing one assist.

Meanwhile, Joe Aribo handed Gernot Rohr a major boost ahead of the clash after he was named on the bench for Glasgow Rangers in Sunday’s 5-0 home win over Hamilton Academical in a Scottish Premier League clash.

Aribo was an unused substitute for Rangers in the big win. Aribo is expected to join up with the Eagles squad in Singapore on Wednesday.
