Iwobi Overcomes Illness, Returns To Arsenal Training

Iwobi Overcomes Illness, Returns To Arsenal Training

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Arsenal's Nigerian star Alex Iwobi may be fit enough to play in his team's quarterfinals Emirates FA Cup game against non-league side Lincoln on Saturday evening, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had initially revealed that Iwobi was a big doubt for the match due to illness.

However on a positive note, the youngster who has eight caps for Nigeria was pictured training with his team-mates on Friday evening.

Iwobi was ruled out of the Gunners' embarrassing 5-1 hammering in the hands of Bayern Munich on Tuesday due to the state of his health which Wenger attributed to a "sickness bug."

Joining Iwobi in Friday's evening training was midfielder Mesut Ozil who was also out with illness but curiously made a appearance in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium.
