Nigerian star gets an assist in Arsenal’s first pre-season game

Alex Iwobi assisted Arsenal's second goal as they beat Sydney 2-0 in their first pre-season game.

Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette

Iwobi started the game from the bench but had an impact when he was introduced, cutting in a fine cross from the right which new Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette converted to double their lead.

Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker had opened the scoring for the Gunners in the fourth minute.

Iwobi will be hoping to have a brilliant season after a very impressive debut year for the Arsenal senior team.

He started last season brilliantly before suffering a slump in the middle of the season which made him lose his spot in Arsenal’s XI.

The 21-year-old will be hoping to come back stronger this season and help Arsenal challenge for top honours.

He seems set for a stay at Arsenal as no transfer rumour has speculated an exit for him.

The likes of Lucas Perez, Olivier Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been linked with a move out of Arsenal.
