Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder, Alex Iwobi, has landed an award at Fulham for his match-winning goal against Manchester United on February 24.

On the said date, Fulham visited Old Trafford to take on the Red Devils, which was a stunning outcome for the traditional mid-table side. Nigeria defender Calvin Bassey scored the match opener in the 65th minute for the visitors before Harry Maguire scored the equalizer in the 89th minute.

When the Manchester United fans at the stadium thought the home side would run away with a 1-1 draw, Alex Iwobi stroked the winner in the 90+7th minute. The goal earned Fulham an unprecedented 2-1 away win at Old Trafford.

On Wednesday, the Premier League club, Fulham, announced that Alex Iwobi’s match-winning goal against Manchester United is the club’s goal of the month for February.

Recall that the Super Eagles lost the final of the tournament to the hosts on February 11, 2023.
