It was an amazing feeling scoring the winning goal against Zambia - Alex Iwobi

Super Eagles and Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has described how he felt scoring the goal that sealed Nigeria’s spot at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Iwobi scored the only in Nigeria’s 1-0 win over a resilient Zambia in October, sending the Super Eagles to their third straight World Cup.
He said “It’s so hard to describe, you know what I mean. When I actually scored the moment was crazy, I remember running off celebrating, I almost cried, I actually almost cried to see how the fans were reacting, to see my mum and dad in the stands, it was just an amazing feeling. When I scored the goal, because the security are very strict the fans were trying to come on the pitch as I scored, but the security guards stopped them and after the fans they played trumpets and banged drums, so the players were just dancing, it was just crazy.”

The Super Eagles who have already qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will depart their Morocco training camp on Thursday for Constantine where they will face the Fennecs Foxes of Algeria in the largely inconsequential qualifier.
