Arsenal teen star Alex Iwobi still clearly recovering from the stomach upset that made him miss the team first two training sessions delighted the watching spectators at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium during training.

Iwobi who wasn’t very mobile without the ball was however very brilliant with the ball at his feet linking up nicely with his teammates on the side of the possibles with neat intricate passes.

He got the stadium cheering when his no look pass found his way to Ogehenekaro Etebo who wasted the chance to fire pass Carl Ikeme in goal and minutes later he was at it again with another clever pass to release Aminu Umar.

The 19 year old also used his close dribbling skill to outwit Shehu Abdullahi but quick intervention from Ikeme stopped him from scoring for his team.

However it’s glaring that he is still way below the fitness level require to start a high profile game like the Friday game although things might change if he sparks up the team last session tomorrow.
