Football in Africa is always meant to be a special affair. It brings people together, makes people happy and gives people a chance to earn their bread. Jay Jay-Okocha, a Premier League legend hails from Nigeria. His nephew, Alex Chuka Iwobi was born in Nigeria but moved to London where his uncle played for a reasonable amount of time. The early signs were always there, Iwobi showed a lot of promise and vigour in the junior Arsenal kit. He grew up alongside many other youth graduates but was one of the first among his batch to taste first-team action under Arsene Wenger at age 18 when he made his league cup debut. Iwobi was soon thrown into the open in a game against Bayern Munich, which they lost 5-1.
