Newly invited Super Eagles striker Alex Iwobi has stated that he was excited in making his debut for Nigeria in the 2-0 defeat to DR Congo in last Thursday friendly match.
“My target is to get as many call-ups as I can, get as many games as I can and win many trophies with Nigeria.”
“It was an honour to represent my country, I was just buzzing to get on for the last half hour and I was excited,” Iwobi enthused
“I got a few touches and I was excited, even though we lost it felt like I won but I enjoyed the moment.”
Iwobi is nephew to former Eagles captain Austin Okocha. He recently signed a long-term contract with Arsenal and hopes to achieve success with Nigeria in the future.
