He is 20 years old, and I think he has talent, he has ambition, he has a big passion for the game and until now he has humility,” Arsenal manager said about Iwobi.

We have to take care that he keeps that quality because it’s an important one.

“But he has gained confidence and power. I believe as well he has a good combination of quick passing, picking players out and running with the ball. He gets that balance right, until now, and that’s not easy.”

Iwobi’s new form will also excite Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr ahead of the crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Zambia.
