Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi put his name on the international map this evening by scoring for Nigeria against Argentina whilst embarrassing Javier Mascherano in the process.
The 21-year-old is now considered one of African football’s most promising players after making his Arsenal debut against Arsenal back in 2015.
Iwobi won his 13th cap last night in Krasnodar and it was one to remember.
It looked to be a routine result for Argentina as Sergio Aguero grabbed a two-goal lead, but Nigeria shocked everyone and came back in the second half.
With the game poised at 3-2 to Nigeria, Iwobi decided to take matters into his own hands, and Mascherano definitely won’t want to be reminded of this:

Arsenal fans will be hopeful Iwobi can reproduce such brilliance when he returns from international duty.
