Nigeria coach, Sunday Oliseh has included Arsenal youngster, Alex Iwobi in his 25-man squad for next month’s international friendlies against DR Congo and Camroon in Belgium.

The 19 year old forward who plays for Arsenal’s under-21 team scored 9 times in the last 9 matches of the 2014/2015 season.

Iwobi was born in Lagos and is a nephew to legendary footballer Jay Jay Okocha. He is eligible to play for Nigeria as he is yet to make a senior appearance for the English football team. FIFA had clarified that since the Arsenal starlet was yet to play for the Three Lions he could switch allegiance to Nigeria.
