Arsenal Hails Iwobi For Impressive Showing Vs Libya

By Adeboye Amosu:
English Premier League club, Arsenal, have celebrated their Nigerian winger, Alex Iwobi following his impressive showing for the Super Eagles in the 4-0 win against Libya in Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo, reports

Iwobi threaded a superb pass for former Watford striker, Odion Ighalo to score Nigeria’s second goal of the game and was outstanding all through.

Ighalo netted a hat trick for the West Africans in the game with Samuel Kalu also scoring on the international scene for the first time.

Iwobi came close to registering a goal in the game but was denied by Libya goalkeeper Mohamed Nashnush.

“Another game, another @alexiwobi assist 🇳🇬. Our Super Eagle is flying at the moment 🙌,” reads a tweet on Arsenal’s official Twitter handle.

Iwobi will hope to replicate the performance when the Super Eagles take on the Mediterranean Knights in the reverse fixture on Tuesday at their adopted home ground in Sfax, Tunisia.

Nigeria lie second in Group E with six points, one less than South Africa, who mauled the group’s whipping boys Seychelles 6-0 in Johannesburg.

    The following is a “copy and paste” of my post in a previous article. It’s a reaction to the Ighalo debate:

    Ighalo did well with those three goals. But I fear for Him because if his luck runs out in subsequent games, his critics (including me) will be out again with a vengeance.

    And why shouldn’t we criticise him? Should we be clapping for Him when he fails to play well?

    I am strongly of the opinion that we still need a clinical finisher in the Super Eagles. One of the goals he scored fell right to his feet and he almost bungled it.

    I repeat without shame what I said in previous posts: if Ighalo can replicate his form in the Chinese league (or come close to it) for the Super Eagles, I will be his greatest fan, even if he decides to play for a club side in Congo or Lesotho.

    Cheers everyone and congratulations for the emphatic victory!

      This news hear is about Iwobi not Ighalo. Why repeating Ighalo in every post.

      Congrats Iwobi, you will likely make the no.10 your own in Super Eagles.
