Super Eagle’s midfielder, Alex Iwobi, was conspicuously missing from Nigeria’s squad for this month’s 2022 World Cup playoffs against Ghana.
Iwobi was not listed among the midfielders or forwards in a 25-man provisional squad list published by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Friday, March 4, 2022.
The reason why Iwobi was dropped from Super Eagles’ squad for World Cup playoffs Against Ghana was because of the red card he picked up during the 1-0 defeat to Tunisia in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Iwobi was sent off for a stamp in the round of 16 clash by Senegalese referee, Maguette N’Diaye.
Iwobi is now suspended for the Super Eagles’ next two fixtures on the continent, which is incidentally against the Black Stars.
