Super Eagles and Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has hailed his side’s terrific start to their 2018-19 Uefa Europa League campaign after defeating Vorskla 4-2 in an Emirates atmosphere described by the midfielder as a ‘party’.
Gabon international and striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 32nd-minute goal, off a brilliant assist from the 22-year-old Iwobi, had the Unai Emery’s men started.
Further efforts from Danny Welbeck, Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil put the game beyond the visitors who managed to force a tense final moment with two late goals.
Iwobi, playing for the first time – since his goalscoring display against Chelsea in August – due to illness, took to the social media to hail his team’s performance and also the Gunners faithful.
“Great to start the Europa League campaign with a win,” Iwobi tweeted. “Fans were amazing, Emirates was a party tonight.”
