Premier League giants Arsenal have promised their Nigerian star Alex Iwobi full support ahead of the Super Eagles’ Russia 2018 World Cup Group D opener against Croatia on Saturday.
Iwobi is expected to make his World Cup debut when the Super Eagles square off against Croatia in Kaliningrad.
The Super Eagles will be the third African team to take to the pitch after Egypt and Morocco opened their accounts on Friday.
Commenting on a picture of Iwobi and Super Eagles teammate Odion Ighalo, the London club wrote on their verified Twitter handle:”When you remember your #WorldCup starts TODAY
“Good luck tonight, @alexiwobi – we’ll be backing you.”
