Iwobi tar­gets wins over Cameroon in WCQ

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

Nige­ria’s Su­per Ea­gles and Arse­nal mid­fielder Alex Iwobi is tar­get­ing wins against Cameroon in both legs of the en­counter when the World Cup qual­i­fiers re­sume in Au­gust.

Un­der the guid­ance of Ger­man tac­ti­cian Ger­not Rohr, Ea­gles are un­beaten in four matches, with wins against Tan­za­nia, Zam­bia and Al­ge­ria and re­cently drew against Sene­gal in Lon­don.

Hale End Academy prod­uct Iwobi, who was in­volved in three of those games, has stated that the Su­per Ea­gles have to be on top of their game when they face the cur­rent African cham­pi­ons.

‘’We are in con­trol in our group and with hard work on our part we should beat Camer­oun in Uyo and also shock them on their ground.

‘’We just need to be res­o­lute and de­ter­mined to get the vic­tory,’’ Iwobi was quoted as say­ing by Sport­ing Life.

An ex-Eng­land U17 in­ter­na­tional, Iwobi de­buted for Nige­ria in a friendly against Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo in Oc­to­ber 2015.
