Future looking bright for Super Eagles

There’s plenty of excitement surrounding the Nigerian Football Team right now following the emergence of two young Premier League stars – Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi.

23-year-old Leicester City star Ahmed Musa is quite the handful too and Nigeria beat Zambia 2-1 away in a World Cup qualifier thanks to their two young stars.

Iwobi’s dream debut

Already a regular in Arsene Wenger’s first XI at Arsenal, Jay-Jay Okacha’s nephew Alex Iwobi was today handed his competitive international debut.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder marked his big day with his first international goal, breaking the deadlock with a powerful volley in the 32nd minute.

Manchester City wonderkid Kelechi Iheanacho doubled Nigeria’s advantage ten minutes later with a fine solo goal.
