JUST IN: Super Eagles forward, Iwobi recovers from COVID-19
Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi who was reported to have tested positive for coronavirus has now returned a negative result according to the latest update from the Nigeria Football Federation [NFF].
“Update: @NGSuperEagles forward, @alexiwobi has tested negative after further COVID-19 tests were conducted,” the NFF wrote Tuesday morning on their Twitter page.
Iwobi was declared positive last Friday ahead of the AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic by health authorities in Port novo.
The Everton star was omitted from the Nigeria squad for the game against Benin Republic since the result conducted by the hosts was said to have been positive.
However, the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr had expressed reservations, labeling the result as fake and the coach appears justified now with the new development giving the former Arsenal star a clean bill of health.
Iwobi has been declared fit now and has been included in squad to face Lesotho by 5pm at the Teslim Balogun stadium for the last game of the AFCON qualifiers.
