AFCON: Iwobi In Full Eagles Training After Food Poisoning

Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi has put behind him an episode of food poisoning that forced him to skip training on Tuesday after he returned to train fully with the squad Wednesday in Kaduna.

Iwobi, who described his experience as “maddest food poisoning”, could not train with the Eagles in Abuja Tuesday morning, but he returned to train on his own in Kaduna later on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, he showed he has fully recovered from the unfortunate incident as he was one of 23 players who trained inside the Ahmadu Bello Stadium.

They played a two-a-side game with Emmanuel Amuneke punctuating the session to dish out corrections.

Iwobi, 19, has played twice for Nigeria in friendlies last year, but he has yet to play an official match since he switched his international allegiance from England.
