An Arsenal fan was left very emotional after meeting Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi for the first time.
The boy couldn’t control the tears rolling down from his eyes after meeting the Super Eagles winger in the national team dressing room.
After getting an autograph, the boy also posed for a picture with the forward after bumping in on him after a game.
According to his guardian, the boy had been patiently waiting for about two weeks just to see the Nigerian attacker. And when he eventually did, it became a dream come true for the fan. He said:
“This is amazing, it’s been a dream.
Meanwhile, another woman, who looks like the boy’s mother also accompanied him while she took personal pictures on her mobile phone.
However, the 24-year-old has moved on from Arsenal as he currently plays for Everton and he seems to be getting accustomed to playing under Carlo Ancelotti. He joined them in a five-year deal valued at around £34 million including potential add-ons.
He has scored two goals and two assists in 21 appearances across competitions for the Merseyside outfit so far this campaign.
Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady identified as Jessica Levi has shared screenshots of chats she sent Nigerian footballer, Alexander Iwobi, when she was just 18 in 2018.
In the chats, the lady who clearly had a crush on the footballer wished him well in his upcoming World Cup match.
The lady went ahead to say that she looks forward to meeting and marrying him someday as she signed off her chat with Love Jess.
