Iwobi withdrawn from Nigeria squad after positive coronavirus test

After testing positive for COVID-19, Alex Iwobi was forced to withdraw from Nigeria's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin.

The Everton forward's infection was allegedly discovered during the Super Eagles' squad's required monitoring ahead of today's match in Porto.

Nigeria has already qualified for the AFCoN Finals, and Iwobi will now be quarantined before rejoining the Blues for first-team training, which means he will also miss Nigeria's match against Lesotho on Tuesday.
