    Good for him, though, he missed a couple of chances. I think, he really needs to work on his finishing abilities. It would’ve been a different story if those chances were all that was needed to kill of a crucial game.

    This is a good reply to Iwobi’s critics and a good way to repay the coach for his trust.

    I said it last week that he would bounce back and he did. Good job!
