An absolutely delighted Nigerian youngster Alex Iwobi has revealed that playing for Arsenal is dream come true.
The 19-year-old nephew of former Nigerian international Austin Okocka broke into the Gunners team this season and has continued to post eye-catching performances for the Arsene Wenger led side in the premier league this season.
Iwobi who helped Arsenal to a vital 2-0 win against Everton just before the international break was again at the center of everything good for the Gunners as he helped himself to a goal in Arsenal’s 4-0 win over Odion Igahalo’s Watford yesterday.
“Happy for the team, glad we won, it’s all for the team and I’m glad we’ve got the three points,” Iwobi said after the game against Watford.
“When you’re young you dream of this and this is like a dream come true, winning with this team.
“Winning the title would be amazing but we’re taking each game as it comes, game by game, and we’ll see where we end up come the end of the season.”
Iwobi joined Arsenal at age seven and his football development has been remarkable. It was no surprise that England wanted him to play for the Three Lions but he instead picked Nigeria and was capped against Egypt in the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier recently.
