Saturday Keigo Erimuya has successfully secured visa to travel to Brazil for Nigeria’s Under-23 friendly game against their Brazilian counterparts.
Erimuya first visited the Brazil embassy in Turkey on Thursday the 10th of March but was asked to come back the next day and was finally given his visa today.
A picture of the visa made available to Owngoalnigeria.com shows he was given a 30 days visa and the Kayseri Erciyesspor defender is set to travel to the samba nation on Sunday the 20th of March.
The ex BJ foundation captain who was a shock inclusion in the team for the friendly against Brazil will be hoping he get some playing time in the game to help him stake a claim for a spot in the Nigeria team for the Olympics later in the year.
Nigeria will take on Brazil on the 24th of March in a friendly game meant to prepare both teams ahead of their campaign at the Rio Olympics.
