Arsenal striker Iwobi hospitalised for food poisoning

22 March 2016, 19:15

Abuja - Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi has been hospitalised in Abuja after falling ill from food poisoning, Nigeria coach Samson Siasia said on Tuesday.

Iwobi, 19, was too sick to train with the rest of the Super Eagles squad ahead of Friday's crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt.

"He suffered from food poisoning and so was not part of the training. But his condition is stable," Siasia told a news conference.

Iwobi probably got sick after eating a salad, Siasia said.

His father, Chuka, who flew with him from London, has visited the young striker in hospital.

Over the weekend, Iwobi crowned his first full Arsenal Premier League debut with a goal in a 2-0 win over Everton.

He has played two friendly matches for Nigeria since he changed international allegiance from England.
