Nigeria's Super Eagles have suffered an injury blow after forward, Alex Iwobi, is ruled out of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon with thigh strain. "It was a good training, everybody was fit, no injuries and now it will be hard for me to choose the starting XI because everybody wants to play", he told reporters after the training in Uyo. "It was good to have the full team train and they are all fit with no injuries, so I hope it will be hard for me to choose the starting eleven because everybody wants to play and it is a good competition for the team".

Zimbabwean Brighton Mudzamiri, who will be the referee assessor in Friday's FIFA World Cup qualifying match between Nigeria and Cameroon in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, has arrived the country on Tuesday.

Iwobi was due to join the Super Eagles training camp on Monday after Arsenal's Premier League game at Liverpool later on Sunday.
