    This Iwobi has really changed. He is not just insisting on playing number 10. Now he is ready to play anywhere. This is what coaches and fans want to hear. With this sort of attitude he will go places. Nobody likes a lazy player who is also choosy.
    Heaven bless Iwobi and all deserving Super Eagles players who are hard working.
