Lagos - Former England International John Fashanu’s opinion is that Super Eagles latest invitee Alex Iwobi, is not good enough yet to be called up to the Nigeria senior national team.
The 19-year-old Arsenal teen is yet to make his competitive debut for Arsenal at senior level but, has been one of their consistent performers at youth level where he presently captains the team.
Last night he was on target for the Arsenal Under-21 in their 3-2 victory away to Wolverhampton Wanderers, a sign of his fine form but Fashanu still believes the Eagles call up is a bit early for the lad.
"Good player with lots of potential but he is not ripe for Super Eagles, that is just so clear and his call up is not fair to other youth players of his age bracket" He told News24.
Fashanu however said he believes the handlers of the national team might have seen enough of Iwobi, for them to have called him up but he believes he is best suited to the youth teams of Nigeria.
"He is one for the youth teams not for the senior team at least for now, until he gets regular game time at competitive level that is my opinion".
