Everton winger Alex Iwobi has been cleared by CAF for today’s action between Nigeria and Lesotho after testing negative for coronavirus.
Iwobi had tested positive on Saturday which prevented him from playing in Nigeria’s 1-0 win at Benin. He took another test on Monday which came out negative. And he is now back to selection for the game at Teslim Balogun stadium.
“I want to say thank you to everyone showing me love and support during this difficult time,” Iwobi told the NFF media channel.
“Your love has been quite overwhelming and I really appreciate it. I have to respect the Fifa and Caf protocols by isolating in my room.
“I mean it wasn’t easy especially knowing when you have no symptoms and you are okay but the main thing is that I am healthy and ready to go for the last game.
“I will like to say a big thank you to the NFF president [Pinnick], he took me like a son, made sure I was able to isolate comfortably.
“Also a thank you to my teammates, to the staff, the coach, they are always checking up on me and made sure I was okay. I am ready to go for the last game let’s see if we can stay unbeaten. Up Super Eagles!”
