The FA cup last weekend had no upset unless you classify replays as one. The Cup was painted in Green and White by the sons of Nigeria.
Alex Iwobi took on the Ozil role for Arsenal and he deputized very well. The injuries to the team may have helped but he is surely taking his chances. When he was subbed off for Rosicky, you could see the significance with a master coming on for the rookie. Rosicky was cheered on but he unfortunately picked up another injury. Sad for Tomas.
Iwobi is making the Emirates a home slowly making the gooners forget the American Zelalem. He has been joined by his compatriots Nwakali and Chukwueze. The Nigerians are building a fort at the Emirates years after Kanu left.
Another Nigerian gooner grabbed his first professional hattrick as he lead Hull City to a FA cup win. Chuba Akpom on loan to Hull City, will now face Arsenal in the next round. Will he play the Super Eagles of Nigeria? Hopefully he does. He may need some advice from Gabriel Agbolahon. He is currently an U21 international for the Three Lions.
Will there be a game where Iwobi, Akpom, Nwakali and Chukwueze will feature at once? The NFF will be proud on that day.
A more senior Nigerian came from the bench and grabbed his 15th goal of the season for Watford. Odion Ighalo is the man. The pundits are still not giving him his credit but he keeps popping up with the goods for Watford. We hope he transfers that form to Nigeria when they face Mohamed El Neny and his Egyptian brothers.
Away from the FA cup, Emmanuel Emenike has joined Westham on loan. Hope he tears England apart. Debuchy has gone to Bordeaux on loan. He surely wants to be at the Euros. Good luck Mathieu.
