Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has been withdrew from Nigeria squad due to a thigh muscle strain.
Nigeria have suffered a blow ahead of next Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in Uyo.
The 21-year-old will also miss the September 4 showdown against African champions Cameroon in Yaounde, according to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). He was due to join the Super Eagles training camp on Monday after Arsenal’s Premier League game at Liverpool later on Sunday.
Iwobi’s initial introduction to the world of football came courtesy of his uncle via rather unconventional means.
Far from influencing his nephew by simply buying him his first infant-sized replica kit or soft sponge football, Iwobi’s uncle instead provided him with an unforgettable first-hand account of just what life as a world-renowned footballer could be like; no doubt, one of the many privileges of having Jay-Jay Okocha for an uncle.
