Posted by badgeKingdomKings on 0

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.
