Iwobi’s Goal Nominated For Everton Goal Of The Month

Alex Iwobi’s goal has been selected for the Everton Goal of the Month award for January.

The 24-year-old’s effort against Wolverhampton Wanderers will compete against Abdoulaye Doucoure’s fine strike in the Goodison Park giants’ 2-1 FA Cup triumph over Rotherham United and James Rodriguez’s beauty against Leicester City for a chance to clinch the individual honour.

That strike ensured the Super Eagles star scored for the first time in 38 English elite division games.

Also in contention are Michael Keane’s header against Wolves, Izzy Christiansen’s effort against Bristol City women, Rhys Hughes’ solo strike in Everton U23’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool U23 in a Premier League Two encounter.

Iwobi would be hoping to add to his goal tally when the Toffees visit Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United at Elland Road on Wednesday evening.
