Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has challenged his Nigerian teammate at Arsenal, Alex Iwobi, to prove him right for supporting the Super Eagles by putting up an impressive performance against Croatia in Saturday’s Group B clash at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The English Football Association's hopes of convincing Arsenal youngster, Alex Iwobi, to represent England, were ended on Friday, as he won his first competitive cap for Nigeria.
The 19-year-old was eligible to play for England, but decided to represent the county of his birth and was a substitute in their 1-1 draw with Egypt, in an AFCON qualifier.
Iwobi, who scored his first Arsenal goal in the 2-0 win over Everton last week, had represented England at Under 16, 17 and under 18 levels.
He had already featured twice for Nigeria in friendlies, but his competitive debut on Friday, means he cannot now represent the Three Lions.
He thanked England for their support....
