Iwobi was subbed off on the hour mark in his 15th Super Eagles appearance for Ahmed Musa.
His teammate, Abdullahi who’s on the books of Turkey’s Super Lig side Bursaspor, is already looking towards the next game against Serbia in London on Tuesday.
The right back also took to his Twitter handle to say:
“Big win tonight against Poland. Massive performance from the squad. Serbia next in London.”
Abdullahi was subbed off for Tyrone Ebuehi after he was seeing clutching his calf in the second half of the game.
