Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr seems to be worried over the fitness of Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, ahead of a vital World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo next weekend.
Iwobi has been omitted from the Gunners squad that boarded a plane bound for Belarus on Wednesday afternoon.
Before the Premier League club departed the English capital, their final workout took place at London Colney, with Iwobi not in attendance.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is understood to be monitoring the situation of Iwobi, with a view to excusing him from international duty against Zambia.
Five players, including CSKA Moscow striker, Aaron Samuel, have been placed on standby to replace an injured player in the 23-play roster at short notice.
