Gernot Rohr has allayed injury concerns over Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi, who was seen holding the back of his thigh in the closing minutes of Nigeria's 2-1 loss to England yesterday.

At the post-match press conference, the German football tactician came with some cheering news that the Hale End Academy product was not injured and only suffered from cramps.

''Only cramps, other players also had cramps which means that all this traveling from Nigeria, at first they are coming from Europe to Nigeria to Lagos, from Lagos to Uyo, from Uyo to Port Harcourt, from Port Harcourt to Abuja again for the Presidential reception,'' Rohr explained. 


''I am happy that we don't have injuries, only cramps.''

The friendly between England and Nigeria was a game of two halves, with the hosts clearly the better team in the first half whereas they were second best for the last forty five minutes. 

''In the first half, we had our usual organization 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-1-1 but it didn't work for several reasons because some of our players were not fit, also England had a good beginning and put the pressure on us.

''The first goal was from a corner and we didn't come out. It was an opportunity to change our system at half-time and play a bit like England 3-5-2 or 5-3-2, we also changed four players. 

''It was much better, unfortunately in the World Cup we can't change four players, the players that came in did very well and we saw a different second half,'' added Rohr.
