Arsenal Star’s Insane Rainbow Flick On International Duty Creates Storm Among Fans
Mesut Ozil can see a hint of Nigerian flair in Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi.
“He reminds me of his uncle, Jay-Jay Okocha,” Ozil recently told Arsenal Player. “He just wants to have fun playing football and that really shows on the pitch.”
Iwobi isn’t on the same level as his uncle when it comes to skills. But that certainly doesn’t mean he’s without a trick in his locker.
The 20-year-old, who has become an important player for Arsenal this season, produced a piece of skill for Nigeria in their game against Algeria that Okocha will have enjoyed.
As the ball approaches, Iwobi produces a sumptuous rainbow flick over his sorry opponent. Check it out by scrolling down the page.

Sheer class. Okocha’s probably telling his pals that he taught Iwobi that.

Arsenal fans would love for Iwobi to become a difference maker this season, and similar moments of brilliance will be welcomed at the Emirates.
The youngster has played in nine league games this season, chipping in with three assists. If he can add goals to his games, there’s no limit to how far he can go.
Iwobi’s father, Chuka, delivered good news to Arsenal supporters by claiming his son will stay at the club for “many, many years”.
“He’s doing well at Arsenal, but should any club come for him now, the answer would certainly be no,” Chuka told African Football.
“For him now, it’s not about the money. So, should a club like Barcelona come with more money, he will certainly stay back at Arsenal because now it is not about him making money, it’s about him concentrating on his career, progressing and going on to the next stage.
“He has broken into the first team and what they all talk about is his humility. Personally, that’s very important because when a player starts getting arrogant that’s when the player fails.
“I see him being with Arsenal for very many, many years.”
