Iwobi: I nearly cried after scoring against Zambia

Arsenal younger, Alexander Iwobi reflects on the wonderful experience of scoring a goal that qualified Nigeria for 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Iwobi 21,scored a second half winner as a Super Substitute off a Shehu Abdullahi cross to send the three times African Champions to the Global mundial.

"The moment was crazy, I remember running off celebrating. I almost cried to see how the fans were reacting, to see my mum and dad in the stands, it was just an amazing feeling."

"It's my homeland, so it's always an honour to wear the white and green. I've seen so many kids on the streets screaming "Go Nigeria", so to represent my country, I am just proud."

"It was like everyone won the lottery, they were just jumping. To go to the World Cup you can see it's not just the players' dream, it's the fans' dream as well."
The former English youth player will be hoping to add to his two international goals as the Super Eagles complete their World Cup qualifying project against Algeria and in the friendly match with Argentina.
