The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has cleared Nigeria midfielder, Alex Iwobi, to feature against Lesotho in Tuesday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Lagos.
Iwobi missed last weekend’s 1-0 victory over the Benin Republic after a COVID-19 test came back positive.
However, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has revealed that the Everton star has now returned a negative test.
“Update: @NGSuperEagles forward, @alexiwobi has tested negative after further COVID-19 tests were conducted,” the NFF tweeted on Tuesday
Hours later, the NFF disclosed Iwobi will feature in the game against Lesotho after he was cleared by CAF.
“Update: CAF clears @alexiwobi to play today’s game against Lesotho,” NFF tweeted.
