Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi will not play a part in the match against the Benin Republic after testing positive for COVID-19.
Everton star Alex Iwobi misses Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin after testing positive for coronavirus, according to reports in the local media.
Unverified sources indicate that the attacker was tested positive for Covid-19 upon arrival in Benin ahead of Saturday’s showdown between the Super Eagles and the Squirrels.
The news comes as a major blow for Gernot Rohr as he looks to get the Eagles over the line and secure their ticket to Cameroon.
The match against Benin is billed for 5pm today.
