Nigeria vs Lesotho: CAF clears Iwobi to play AFCON qualifier


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 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.
