ARSENAL of England and Nigeria’s new kid on the block, Alex Iwobi, yesterday shrugged off the food poison that stopped him from training in Abuja as he bounced back later in the day in Kaduna where he had a light workout with the rest of the squad.
The 19-year-old’s presence at the Super Eagles training put an end to reports that he was still mulling an England decision.
However, while the team trained together, Iwobi worked with the team’s physio as he tried to build up stamina.
He walked around the pitch a few times before he was put through aerobic exercises and light ball juggling.
Nigeria would hope that the youngster gets his energy levels back in order that he might reprise his recent form at Arsenal.
Iwobi scored his first senior Arsenal goal against Everton in a 2-0 victory on Saturday.
