Iwobi has perfected this technique of standing in the middle of the 18, and just guiding the ball to the far post with one touch. That was how he scored against Zambia, and he now scored the same way against Argentina. Many defenders do not anticipate this, and defend deep thereby giving him the space he needs.

His nutmeg of Mascherano was a direct result of the first goal. Mascherano jumped in to block his first touch, and he coolly nutmegged the old man. Iwobi is unpredictable around the 18, which makes him an asset.

He should be a first choice starter in Russia and I think he will score many goals from there.

Iwobi should be our AM.

Mikel and Ndidi behind with Moses and Onyekuru/Nacho on the flanks

It is because no one else in Eagles contests that run and positioning with him. In Arsenal, everyone including the goal keeper is waiting for the cutback around the D. It is good to see in SE sha to be honest. We can score goals from half chances now

If Mikel were faster this will be the perfect Midfield line up for this formation; Ndidi - Mikel - Iwobi. But I will not advocate, too much of a risk.

Arsene Wenger described Alex Iwobi at being at his very best in small, tight spaces. He said Iwobi sorts his feet out far quickly than others. We are beginning to see the truth in that.

Then you give up too much in the middle with Mikel there. I don't see a scenario where Rohr drops mikel from his advanced midfield role.

That statement describes Iwobi perfectly. Arsenal fans on Twitter are asking why he does score like this for them. I think because the other players won’t let him.
