Iwobi nutmegs Mascherano before slotting home for Nigeria

Matt Morley by Matt Morley @rfutbol - 0 2,802

Arsenal's Alex Iwobi capped off a fine performance against Argentina by scoring a fine effort to double his tally for the evening and give the 'Super Eagles' a 4-2 lead.

The 'Albiceleste' reinforced the suggestions that they are nothing special in the absence of Lionel Messi as they threw away a 2-0 lead to lose 4-2 against Nigeria.

Iwobi was in particularly fine form, scoring twice and his second was a joy to behold.

The 21-year-old received the ball on the edge of the Argentina box and casually slipped the ball between the legs of Javier Mascherano before firing past Agustin Marchesin in Krasnodar.

It was a fine finish from the youngster, who will now have his sights set on gaining more regular game time with his club side.
