Super Eagles attacker, Alex Iwobi will miss Nigeria’s final AFCON qualifier with Lesotho.

This comes after he tested positive for deadly COVID-19 disease. This was confirmed by the officials of the NFA in an interview with the AFP on Monday.

The Super Eagles spokesman, Babafemi Raji in his submission said;

“Iwobi has left the camp. Before he left, he did not show any symptoms, he was fine.”

Per what we gathered, the Everton attacker tested positive before Saturday’s 1-0 away win over Benin, and travelled back to Nigeria with the rest of the squad on Sunday.
