Arsenal fans were introduced to a new player on Wednesday during the club’s pre-season friendly against Singapore Select XI.
Wearing the number 45 shirt, Alex Iwobi got his Arsenal first team debut in the match.
The 19-year-old midfielder has previously captained the Arsenal’s under-21 side, and he has represented England at under-16, 17 and 18 level.
Moreover, Iwobi was also picked for the Gunners’ bench for their Champions League clash against Galatasaray in December 2014.
On Wednesday, the teenager got his Arsenal debut in Asia, and that provoked his uncle, Nigerian legend Jay-Jay Okocha, to shout out his family member on Twitter.
Jay-Jay told his followers that he was “feeling head over hills” watching Alex Iwobi in action for the Gunners.
Jay-Jay Okocha, 41, is arguably Nigeria’s greatest ever player, who played for the likes of Fenerbahce, PSG, Bolton and Hull during his illustrious career.
