Exclusive – Returning Arsenal Star Alex Iwobi Won’t Start For Nigeria Against Zambia


Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi is not guarantee to start for Nigeria when they take on Zambia in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers in Uyo on Saturday, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.


Iwobi missed the back to back games against Cameroon due to an injury, but he has since recovered and even scored his first league goal for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

However his return to full fitness and goal scoring for Arsenal is still not enough to help him force his way into the starting line up of the Super Eagles, as coach Gernot Rohr will stick with the same starting line up that picked up a win and a draw against Cameroon in their last World Cup Qualifiers.

The front three of Moses Simon, Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo are sure to start against Zambia on Saturday barring any late minute change of mind, although injury could also see one of them drop from the starting line up.
