Following his debut against Aston Villa on Friday, Iwobi became the fifth Nigerian to play for the Toffees

The wideman was snapped up by the Toffees from Arsenal for a fee of £40 million, as manager Marco Silva strengthened his squad before the commencement of this season.

Iwobi made his much-awaited debut in Friday’s 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa after replacing Gylfi Sigurdsson in the 61st minute.

The Super Eagles’ star became the fifth Nigerian to represent the Goodison Park outfit.

The ex-Gunner narrowly missed a debut goal after his low shot from Moise Keane’s header was denied by the woodwork.

Friday’s defeat at Villa Park is Everton’s first loss of the ongoing Premier League season - a result which sees them sit in ninth position with four points.

Iwobi would be eyeing his second appearance and first goal for the club when they face Lincoln City in Wednesday’s League Cup outing at Sincil Bank.
