ICC: Alex Iwobi on parade as Arsenal thrash PSG

Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi was on show as Arsenal inflicted a heavy defeat on French champions, Paris Saint-Germaine at the International Champions Cup, in the US.

Iwobi lasted 45 minutes in Arsenal’s 5-1 win over PSG in their second game at the preseason competition.

The 22-year-old was one of three changes made by manager, Unai Emery, just before the second half started, with the Gunners already 1-0 ahead thanks to Mesut Ozil’s 13th minute goal.

Iwobi was replaced by French forward, Alexandre Lacazette, who went on to restore Arsenal’s lead, after Christopher Nkunku’s penalty goal canceled out Ozil’s opener on the hour mark.

Lacazette doubled Arsenal’s advantage in the 71st minute, his second of the game and Arsenal’s third.

Two late goals from Rob Holding and youngster Edward Nketiah sealed a comfortable win for Emery’s men.

Up next for Iwobi and Arsenal is a game against city rivals and familiar foes, Chelsea on Wednesday.
