England makes Last attempt to snatch Iwobi from Nigeria

Alex Iwobi, Super Eagles and Arsenal winger/striker, is being targeted by the England FA to abandon Nigeria for the three lions of England.

According to, Iwobi, the new kid on the block, is at the centre of a tug of war between England and Nigeria after becoming a regular in the Gunners’ first team set-up since the turn of the year.

He played for the three lions U16, U17 and U18 before choosing to represent his country of birth, Nigeria.

Iwobi joined Arsenal while still at primary school, and signed a new long-term contract in October 2015.

Later that month, he made his competitive debut for the club, starting in a 3–0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the round of 16 of the League Cup.

He made his Premier League debut four days later in a 3–0 win against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, as an added-time substitute for Messut Ozil. Iwobi started in the first team for the 2015-16 FA Cup 3rd and 4th round home wins against Sunderland and Burnley respectively.

In March 2016, Iwobi scored his first senior goal in a 2–0 away victory against Everton.
The chances of Iwobi playing for England will forever be lost if he plays for Nigeria in the double header game against Egypt for the AFCON qualifiers.
