Arsenal have saluted Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi for putting in an outstanding outing in Nigeria’s 4-0 thumping of Libya in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday in Uyo.

The Arsenal forward provided an assist as Odion Ighalo bagged a hat-trick, while Samuel Kalu completed the mauling as Nigeria brightened their chances of qualifying for next year’s African showpiece in neighbouring Cameroun.

“Another game, another @alexiwobi assist. Our Super Eagle is flying at the moment,” Arsenal wrote on their Twitter handle.

The Eagles take on the Mediterranean Knights in the reverse fixture on Tuesday at their adopted home ground in Sfax, Tunisia.

With Saturday’s win, Nigeria moved to second on six points in Group E, one point behind leaders South Africa.
