Am proud to represent Nigeria – Iwobi


Super Eagles and Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi, is still basking in the euphoria of representing Nigeria at the full international level.

Iwobi who made his debut under the tutelage of former coach Samson Siasia, is waxing stronger in the team and always bubbling with energy anytime he wears the national colour.

The youngster is full of excitement to be the scorer of the goal that actually qualified the country for her 6th world cup appearances.

Speaking to his club’s website on Wednesday afternoon, he had this to say: “Yeah it’s basically my family, where they’re from, where I’m from it’s my homeland.

“It’s always an honour to wear the green, white and green. I mean I’ve seen so many kids on the street when we’re like in the bus, they’re screaming “go Nigeria, go Nigeria”, so to represent them, I’m just proud.

He further explained what he felt after he netted the winner against Zambia, “It’s so hard to describe, you know what I mean.

“When I actually scored, the moment was crazy, I remember running off celebrating. I almost cried, I actually almost cried to see how the fans were reacting, to see my mum and dad in the stands, it was just an amazing feeling.

The prolific forward has been an integral part of the Super Eagles team and he scored two vital goals for the team enroute getting the 2018 world cup qualification ticket.
