Key battle: Robert Lewandowski vs Alex Iwobi

This is not a joke. Of course Alex Iwobi should not be considered in the same bracket as Lewandowski but the young Arsenal forward is his country’s star man.

Iwobi was fantastic when the Super Eagles beat Argentina 4-2 back in November. He scored twice, taking the limelight away from Dybala, Di Maria and Aguero.

Lewandowski is always the one to watch for club and country. If Nigeria give him even an inch of space, he is sure to punish them.

Poland team news

Poland have a number of global superstars in their ranks. Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianaski are two excellent goalkeepers who are aided by Dortmund’s Łukasz Piszczek and Monaco’s Kamil Glik.

Robert Lewandowski is one of the most deadly forwards in the world and he has already scored 32 goals in 27 games for Bayern Munich this season.

Poland are currently 6th in the FIFA World rankings and they need to prove their worth if they want to be seen as one of the dominant forces in international football.

Nigeria team news

Nigeria have a number of Premier League talents within their side.

Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi, who has been tremendous throughout the campaign, is back in the squad alongside Chelsea’s Victor Moses and Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi.

Another Leicester man, Kelechi Iheanacho, is also in the Nigeria team and he has a great record with his country scoring 8 goals in 14 appearances for The Super Eagles.

It may be hard to believe but Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi is fantastic whenever he plays for his country. Iwobi is the nephew of Nigerian great Jay-Jay Okocha and when he plays for the national team, you can see that they are related.
