Nigeria vs Zambia: I won’t encourage my son to break camp rules – Iwobi’s father

Alex Iwobi’s father, Chuka, has explained why his son missed Tuesday’s Super Eagles training session, ahead of Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia on Saturday.
Iwobi, who plays for Arsenal in England, was one of only five players who missed the team’s first session at the practice pitch of the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Tuesday.
He arrived on Tuesday, but could not participate in the session, which had 20 players in attendance, but took part in the evening session on Wednesday.
Arsenal played a game on Sunday and the way it works at Arsenal is you have media obligations and then the warm down.
“It was an early kick-off but then you’ve got the media, the warm down and it was practically impossible to head off straight to the airport. He could also have cramp,” Chuka stated.
Iwobi senior insists he has trained his son not to take his duties lightly.
Alex Iwobi is a very disciplined young man and I’d be the last person to encourage him to disobey camp rules.
“If Arsenal had played on Saturday, Alex would have been here by Monday and he’d have taken part in training. It was logistically impossible for him to have got here by Monday. I left London with him on Monday for Abuja and we left immediately for Uyo. We got to Uyo as soon as possible; there was no resting in Abuja or anything. We spoke with the team officials about the situation and they agreed with us,” he added.
