Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi, has withdrawn from next Friday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in Uyo.
According to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Iwobi has suffered a thigh muscle strain.
The 21-year-old will also miss the September 4 showdown against African champions Cameroon in Yaounde.
Iwobi was due to join the Super Eagles training camp on Monday, after Arsenal’s Premier League game at Liverpool on Sunday.
He featured in Nigeria’s first two World Cup qualifiers against Zambia and Algeria, scoring in a 2-1 win in Zambia in October last year.
He has been replaced by CSKA Moscow striker Aaron Samuel, who was placed on standby last week.
