Mercurial Iwobi Stars for 90 Minute In Arsenal Hard Fought Draw Against PSG


Arsenal teen Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi was on for the entire duration of Arsenal UEFA Champions league opening tie against PSG which ended 1-1.


Handed his second start in the history of the UEFA Champions League, the Nigeria international had an eventful game at the Parc de Princes.
Iwobi reinstated back into the starting line up by manager Arsene Wenger, twice came close to scoring as Arsenal chased the game after Edinson Cavani has given the home side an early lead.

The 20 year old had a hand in the equaliser by Alexis Sanchez, as his well hit effort was parried by the goalkepper of PSG into the path of the Chilean who rifled home the leveller for Arsenal.

Minutes later he almost gave Arsenal the lead for the first time in the game, after a through pass by Sanchez but his low short failed to beat Areola, who stretched to punch away Iwobi’s effort.
