W/Cup qualifier: Iwobi, Iheanacho down Zambia in Ndola


By Tunji Faleye

English Premier League duo of Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho scored in the first half for Super Eagles in their World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Levy Mwanawasa Stadium, Ndola on Sunday.

Arsenal’s attacking midfielder Iwobi pounced on a weak header to slot home the first goal in the 32nd minute, while City’s Iheanacho dribbled the Zambian defence to register the second goal latter.

The two 20-year-old strikers’ efforts in the opening half of the match recorded a 2-1 victory in dola, with the country's president Edgar Lungu in attendance.

Both Iwobi and Iheanacho have been fantastic for Arsenal and Manchester City this season with their scintillating performances.
