ABUJA. — Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi has been hospitalised in Nigerian capital Abuja after falling ill from food poisoning, Nigeria coach Samson Siasia said yesterday.
Iwobi (19) was too sick to train with the rest of the Super Eagles squad ahead of Friday’s crucial African Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt.
“He suffered from food poisoning and so was not part of the training. But his condition is stable,” Siasia told a news conference. Iwobi probably got sick after eating a salad, Siasia said. — AFP
