Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, is yet to make a decision over Alex Iwobi’s availability, for next week’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo.

Rohr is waiting to see if Iwobi will make Arsene Wenger’s squad, for Sunday’s Premier League fixture against Brighton, before replacing him with someone from the standby list.

“Coach Rohr is not in a hurry to beckon on any of the standby players for now,” Super Eagles, media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, told Completesportsnigeria.com.

“He said he would like to see if Iwobi will play against Brighton, but may have to invite any if the standby if Alex fails to make the bench.”

Iwobi is struggling with a muscle strain and missed Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Bate Borisov in Thursday night’s UEFA Europa League tie.
