Etebo becomes the third Eagles player to pull out of the friendlies after Wilfred Ndidi – who was also injured – and Victor Osimhen – who was excused from the team due to COVID-19 restrictions in Napoli.
The Eagles are billed to play Algeria on Friday, before slugging it out with Tunisia four days later.
Both games are set to hold in Austria.
