Egypt midfielder Mohamed Elneny has exclusively told Completesportsnigeria.com that he hopes his Arsenal club mate Alex Iwobi recovers fully from the food poisoning the Nigeria forward suffered from on Tuesday.
Nigeria host Egypt in a key Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Kaduna on Friday.
Iwobi and Elneny have been in great form for the Gunners prior to the international break and the former Basel player believes the 19-year-old Nigerian will be a good addition to the Super Eagles if fully fit.
“I hope he’s fit to play. Iwobi is a good player,” Iwobi told Completesportsnigeria.com when he was informed Iwobi trained with the Super Eagles.
Elneny who joined The Gunners in the January transfer window has been in splendid form for Arsenal, scoring a stunning strike against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.
