Iwobi’s Arsenal through to Europa league semis


Super Eagles attacker Alex Iwobi came on as a 68th minute substitute, as Arsenal beat Napoli 1-0 to advance 3-0 on aggregate to secured semi final place in the Europa league.



The Gunners had won the first leg 2-0 last week at the Emirates and completed the job at the San Paolo Stadium in Naples on Thursday.

Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette decided the outcome of the game, curling a direct free-kick into the back of the net from all of 30 meters nine minutes before half-time.

In that time Lacazette became the first Arsenal player to score from a direct free-kick in Europe since Thierry Henry against Roma in 2002-03.

Arsenal have kept nine clean sheets in their past 11 European games, conceding just four goals in that period.
