Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho score in Champions League

The Nigerian duo of Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho were both on target for their respective clubs in the UEFA Championship League on Tuesday.


Iheanacho showed that he could fit in, in the absence of Sergio Aguero, by scoring Manchester City’s only goal in their 1-1 draw against Celtic FC.


The Citizens conceded an early goal in the fourth minute but Iheanacho was on hand to restore parity in the 8th minute of the encounter that took place at the Etihad stadium.


Regardless of the outcome, Manchester City finished as runners up behind Barcelona who ended the group stage on a high with a 4-0 bashing of Borussia Monchengladbach.


In the other game, Iwobi scored for Arsenal in their 4-1 win over Swiss side, Basel.


The goal will be a confidence booster for Iwobi who scored an own goal last time out against PSG.
The Gunners finished top in group as PSG could only manage a draw in their own game.
