Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi, was picked as the best Nigerian footballer for 2018 after the AiteoCAF Awards which took place in Dakar, Senegal, on Tuesday.

Iwobi, who was the only Nigerian in CAF’s top 10, was ranked sixth best player in Africa behind Mehdi Benatia, Riyad Mahrez, his Arsenal teammate, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Liverpool duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who defended his crown as Africa’s best footballer.

The playmaker was particularly important for his club and Nigeria last year, helping the Super Eagles seal a place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
