Friendly: Iwobi set for 60th Super Eagles appearance in Nigeria vs Algeria

Alex Iwobi will look to make his 60th appearance for the Super Eagles in Tuesday’s friendly against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

The Everton star has so far scored 10 goals in 59 appearances for the three-time African champions.

Iwobi represented England at the youth level but declared to play for the Super Eagles in 2015.

The 26-year-old made his debut for the Super Eagles in October 2015, replacing Ahmed Musa in the 2-0 friendly defeat to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The former Arsenal player scored the goal that qualified the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

He has represented the Super Eagles at two Africa Cup of Nations finals.

The Super Eagles will take on Algeria at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran on Tuesday. Kick-off is 8 pm Nigeria time.
