Alex Iwobi not only scored for Nigeria on Saturday evening, he sent his country through to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Iwobi came on in the 66th minute for Nigeria against Zambia.

The 21-year-old went on to score the only goal of the match in the 73rd, not only winning the clash for Nigeria but sending them through to the World Cup in Russia next year. They’re the first African team to qualify.

It was the forward’s second goal in 12 caps and what a time to score it.

Congratulations, Alex!

Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka also got on the score sheet for Switzerland during their World Cup qualifier against Hungary.

It was hardly a worldie since the midfielder simply capitalised on a mistake from goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi. But it was a goal nonetheless and probably much-needed considering Xhaka’s poor form for Arsenal this season.

It was the 25-year-old’s eighth goal for his country.

Switzerland ended up winning 5-2.

Sead Kolasinac played a whole match for Bosnia against Belgium but his side lost 3-4. It was the left-back’s 21st appearances for his country.

Alexandre Lacazette got a rare start for France during their 1-0 win over Bulgaria, which saw midfielder Blaise Matuidi net the only goal of the game.

Olivier Giroud came on in the 85th minute for Kylian Mbappe.
