The five-time World Cup champions will lock horns with the Super Eagles during the next Fifa international break.
Shortly after the country’s 2-2 draw with Ukraine in Dnipro, German tactician Gernot Rohr made a request they should at least play another African nation to prepare for November’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with the Benin Republic and Lesotho.
With the Brazil and Nigeria friendly scheduled for October, it is certain the three-time African kings will converge on Asian soil to continue their preparations for the Squirrels.
According to a release from the Brazilian Football Confederation, Rohr’s side was picked because they are ranked among the best two teams in Africa and also for their physical football.
Nigeria lost 3-0 to the South Americans in their last meeting at the National Stadium in Abuja.
