Heartbreak for Nigeria as star midfielder to miss World Cup playoffs against Ghana

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Super Eagles of Nigeria will be missing the services of key midfielder Alex Iwobi when they square up against perennial rivals Ghana in the final round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Nigeria were paired to face the Black Stars in the World Cup playoffs on Saturday, January 22 as CAF conducted its final draws for its representatives at the World Cup holding in Qatar.

The Everton midfielder courtesy of picking up a red card against Tunisia as the Super Eagles exited the Africa Cup of Nations will now be banned from taking any part in the first-leg in Accra.
