Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will be expected to name a replacement for the former Chelsea defender.
The three-time African champions are scheduled to arrive in Singapore on Wednesday for the friendly slated to take place at the Singapore National Stadium.
The West Africans lost 3-0 in their last encounter against the South Americans in 2003 and will hope for a positive result against the five-time world champions.
