Arsenal and Nigeria fans have received an injury blow after one of Nigeria’s main stars and Arsenal’s player, Alex Iwobi, has been officially confirmed that he picked up an injury ahead of the match against Croatia in the World Cup.
Nigeria will be debuting today in the world cup against the European side, Croatia, where they will be seeking the three points to take advantage of Argentina’s draw today and be on the top of their group in the world cup.
However, Nigeria’s match won’t be so easy after one of their main starts, Alex Iwobi, picked up an injury.
Nigeria national team’s manager, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed in an interview with Bein Sports ahead of the match that Alex Iwobi has picked up a minor injury during the training ahead of the match, where the Nigerian forward will risk and play this decisive match with his national team.
The German manager, Gernot Rohr, confirmed that Alex Iwobi will be starting on the left side as a winger, regardless of his minor injury.
Gernot Rohr has managed to lead Nigeria to the world cup and qualify in a tough qualification group where they became the first African nation to officially qualify for the world cup.
Alex Iwobi will be playing with his national team today, where he will be trying to help his country qualify to the knock out stages which will be kind of a bad news for Arsenal, as he will be missing the preseason matches which will be starting in four weeks, and he will be granted an extra vacation ahead of next season.
