NFF to conduct another COVID-19 test on Iwobi as it suspects foul play

Another COVID-19 test for Everton forward, Alex Iwobi will be carried out by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Recall that Iwobi tested positive on arrival at Porto Novo ahead of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Benin Republic in a 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Thereafter, he immediately left camp and returned to Lagos to self-isolate.

Iwobi would, however, undergo another test, to confirm if it was just a ploy by the Beninoise to demoralise the Super Eagles.

If he tests negative, the former Arsenal man will be part of the Lesotho game on Tuesday.

Gernot Rohr’s men have already qualified for next year’s tournament.
