Iwobi revealed that since training with Iwobi at the tender age of 17, his game has improved.

He said,  “I get the privilege to play with him every day.

“I have been training with him since I was 17 and I have seen what he can do. The quality he has in training and matches shows he is a world-class player and he proved that again [on Monday].

“He gives me advice in a different way. He jokes around but always tells me I can do more — even last night he was saying I can do more, he is always one of those guys.”

Iwobi also revealed that aside from being able to improve on his game while training with Ozil, the German also offers him words of advice to help his game.

He said, “But he is always happy, always encouraging me and giving me the confidence to express myself. It is not just Mesut who is captain, there are lots of leaders.

“We are a team who just like to help each other so we are always giving information and communicating.

“Mesut will come across as laid-back but he is helping everyone in a different way and he helps me a lot.”
