Nigeria vs Lesotho: Iwobi tests negative for COVID-19

Iwobi leaves Super Eagles camp after positive Covid-19 test

Alex Iwobi has tested negative for COVID-19 ahead of today’s 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho, according to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The Everton midfielder’s positive result became a subject of controversy, as he was forced to miss Saturday’s 1-0 win at Benin Republic.

He was replaced by Galatasaray’s Henry Onyekuru for the game.

However, the NFF, in a tweet on Tuesday morning, confirmed that further tests carried out on the player returned negative.

In another development, CAF has cleared Alex Iwobi to play today’s game against Lesotho. The Super Eagles player had earlier tested positive following the COVID-19 tests conducted on the Super Eagles squad on arrival in Porto Novo, Benin Republic.
