Iwobi Quits Eagles Camp After Testing Positive For COVID-19
Alex Iwobi will not be available for Nigeria’s final 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho after testing positive for Covid-19, officials told AFP on Monday.
Everton forward Iwobi tested positive before Saturday’s 1-0 away win over Benin, and travelled back to Nigeria with the rest of the squad on Sunday.
“Iwobi has left the camp,” Eagles spokesman Babafemi Raji told AFP.
“Before he left, he did not show any symptoms, he was fine.”
Iwobi, 24, has scored twice during the qualifying campaign for the delayed Cup of Nations, which will be hosted by Cameroon in January next year.
