Arsenal fans on the lower terraces to the East-end of Emirates Stadium are full of praise for Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi for given them the opportunity to get clear view of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty kick that seals the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Manchester United last Sunday in English Premiership clash.
Iwobi, alongside Metteo Guendouzi were having their warm up on the sideline and waiting to be introduced into the high profile match when the centre referee awarded a penalty to the home side.
The duo were not under obligation to reposition themselves while performing their obligatory function but were kind enough to duck out of the way so fans could get a clear view of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty against Manchester United which was score by the Gabonese forward.
Daily Mail reports that the duo actually responded to the plea from the home side because their position will not give them a good view to see the crucial kick that confirms Arsenal’s leapfrog over Red Devils into fourth position and a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League if the situation remains like that till the end of the league.
“A number of supporters had their view blocked by the two substitutes, as some shouted out for them to move.
Fortunately, they heard their calls and ducked down to the ground, leaving fans in hysterics.
The pair even began doing press-ups while they waited for referee Jon Moss to let Aubameyang take the penalty, which he scored.
Iwobi would come on shortly after for Mesut Ozil, but Matteo Guenoduzi remained an unused substitute.
Earlier in the match, Granit Xhaka opened the scoring when his 12th minute long range shot that beats the fast intuition of David De Gea.
The Gunners leapfrogged the Red Devils after the 2-0 win to move into fourth place in the Premier League with the win.
