Arsenal have celebrated Alex Iwobi following his impressive showing for the Super Eagles in the 4-0 win against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya in Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo.
The Nigerian winger threaded an excellent pass for former Watford striker, Odion Ighalo to score Nigeria’s second goal of the match and was dazzling all through.
Ighalo netted a hat trick for Nigeria in the game with Samuel Kalu also scoring on the international scene for the first time.
Iwobi came close to scoring a goal in the match but was denied by Libya goalkeeper Mohamed Nashnush.
“Another game, another @alexiwobi assist ??. Our Super Eagle is flying at the moment ?,” reads a tweet on Arsenal’s official Twitter handle.Edit
Iwobi looks to replicate the performance when the Super Eagles take on Libya in the second leg on Tuesday at their adopted home ground in Sfax, Tunisia.
The Super Eagles are second in Group E with six points, South Africa has seven points after mauling the group’s whipping boys Seychelles 6-0 in Johannesburg.
