Everton forward, Alex Iwobi, has been replaced in Nigeria’s squad for next week’s World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic, by Lorient striker Terem Moffi, Goal reports.

On Friday, Rafael Benitez confirmed that Iwobi is battling an injury and might not play against Manchester United in their Premier League game on Saturday.

Benitez’s update came only after the 25-year-old was included in Gernot Rohr’s team for the double-header fixtures against CAR on October 7 and 10.

“Alex has a little problem and I’m not sure if he’ll be available for tomorrow,” Benitez said.

“But I’m really pleased with the way he’s working and training. I think he’s improving and he’s enjoying that. We can improve him more because he’s working so hard – he can be a much better player by the end of the season.”

In September, Iwobi played in one of the Super Eagles’ qualifying games at the Teslim Balogun Stadium which ended in a 2-0 win over Liberia, thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s brace.
