JUST IN: Iwobi Ruled Out Of Arsenal Friendly
Fans hoping to see Alex Iwobi play his first game under new manager Unai Emery today (Thursday) against Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup will have to wait longer.
It has been confirmed that Iwobi as well as the duo of Mesut Ozil and Mohamed Elneny who all starred at the World Cup for their various national teams have all been excused from the Atletico Madrid tie.
