Alex Iwobi has allayed fears over his availability for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt after suffering from food poisoning.
Iwobi missed the Super Eagles first and last training sessions in Abuja as a result of food poisoning he suffered on Monday.
But the 19-year-old Arsenal product has come out to state that he is okay and ready to feature in the game against Egypt.
He wrote on his Twitter handle: “Had the maddest food poisoning but I am good now and feeling ready for the Egyptian match.”
Earlier, coach Samson Siasia had confirmed that Iwobi has recovered from the food poisoning and will be fit to play.
Meanwhile, Iwobi is currently in Kaduna with the Eagles who left Abuja Tuesday morning.
Iwobi, scored his first ever goal for Arsenal in their 2-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park, in last Saturday’s Premier League game.
