Big Injury Boost For Nigeria: Iwobi Trains Without Any Issues Before Arsenal’s Trip

Nigeria, and manager Gernot Rohr in particular, have been handed a big injury boost two weeks before naming their provisional World Cup roster, with news that Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi is no longer listed as out.

Arsenal Youth team guru Jeorge Bird has informed sportandstudy.orgthat Iwobi trained without any issues on Wednesday ahead of the Gunners trip to Spain, where they will face Atlético de Madrid in the semifinal of the Europa League.

Whether the Hale End Academy product will start against the European specialists tomorrow is another matter as Wenger named him in the starting lineup in their 2-1 loss to Manchester United last weekend.

Iwobi has not started for Arsenal in their last five matches in the Europa League though he has always made the 18, coming off the bench in both legs against CSKA Moscow, while he was a non-playing sub against AC Milan and the first leg against Atlético de Madrid.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sead Kolašinac who had been rated doubtful for the trip to Spain participated in full training along with Iwobi.

The Nigeria international needs five more games to reach a 100-game milestone for Arsenal.
