Arsenal Hail Iwobi As Super Eagles Seal AFCON Ticket
Nigeria's qualification for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations is being celebrated across the world and Premier League club, Arsenal are also enjoying the moment even as they hail their player, Alex Iwobi for a job well done.
Though Iwobi was not as spectacular as he was in the last set of matches against Libya, the new Eagles' playmaker did his bit to ensure that Nigeria cement their place at Africa's flagship event to be staged in summer next year in Cameroon.
The London club posted this on their twitter handle:
Three –time champions Nigeria flew majestically back to the biggest football houseparty on the continent after being held 1-1 by South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday.
It was certainly not one of the classics, but the result meant only one other team in Gourp E (either Libya or South Africa) could end up with the same 10 points that Nigeria already have, by the of the qualification series in March 2019. But Libya’s 8-1 defeat of their hosts Seychelles on Mahé Island would create real fear in the Bafana Bafana going into that last battle against the Mediterranean Knights in Tunisia.
