The 21-year-old Arsenal schemer may not get a lot of goals, but he’s the creative presence that frees up opportunities for teammates to plunder the opposition net. Like the Artful Dodger in the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist, Iwobi has the skill and dexterity to pickpocket the best of defences. The nephew of former Nigerian great Jay-Jay Okocha, Iwobi played youth football for England, but eventually decided to represent Nigeria at international level. After making a sensational impact during his initial break-through at Arsenal, things went a bit quiet for the midfielder this season, especially during the Gunners’ difficult patch a few months ago. But there’s no doubting his exceptional talent – and he will be a major headache for Bafana on Saturday.
