Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi was in the starting line up as Arsenal defeated Sutton 2-0 in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the Gander Green Lane on Monday.
It was the Nigerian international eight appearances in the FA Cup as he played from the left flank and gave the Sutton defenders a nightmare with his mesmerising skills and pace.
Lucas Perez opened the floodgate of goals as he flicked the ball past the Sutton goalkeeper, Ross Worner in the 26th minute before Theo Walcott netted his 100 goals in the colours of the Gunners to end the host FA Cup fairy tale dream.
However, Iwobi was substituted in the 74th minute as he was replaced by Alexis Sanchez to the delight of manager, Arsene Wenger.
