Arsenal’s Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi has congratulated Oliver Giroud after the Frenchman scored a brace for the Gunners on Tuesday to celebrate Monday’s birth of the Frenchman’s baby boy.
Arsenal defeated Hull 2-0 to set up an FA Cup quarter-final clash with Watford.
Giroud also ended his 11-game scoring drought in the FA Cup replay as Arsene Wenger’s side ended a run of five games without a win.
And Iwobi who starred in the victory also thanked the fans for their amazing support.
“Good win, the fans were amazing and congrats to Olivier Giroud on his new born baby.” Iwobi who has chalked 11 appearances in his debut season for the Gunners tweeted after the game.
Iwobi has been called up by Nigeria’s interim coach Samson Siasia for this month’s crucial 2017 African Nations Cup against Egypt in Kaduna and in Alexandria four days later.
