In the friendly matchup against the Algerian Desert Foxes on Tuesday, Alex Iwobi will attempt to make his 60th appearance for the Super Eagles.



The Everton star has played 59 times for the three-time African champions and has so far scored 10 goals.

Iwobi played for England as a young player, but in 2015 he committed to the Super Eagles.

In the 2-0 friendly loss to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the 26-year-old replaced Ahmed Musa to make his Super Eagles debut in October 2015.

The former Arsenal player scored the goal that qualified the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

He has represented the Super Eagles at two Africa Cup of Nations finals.

The Super Eagles will take on Algeria at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium, Oran, on Tuesday. Kick-off is at 8 pm Nigerian time.
