The Nigerian international has cemented his place in the Arsenal first-team ever since breaking through at the end of last season, however this hasn’t been a great week for him.
He and his team-mates could only watch on in horror as he deflected a header past his own goalkeeper with 13 minutes left, leaving the score at 2-2 and Arsenal looking likely to finish second in their group.
Speaking to Sky Sports, via Goal, Iwobi wasn’t trying to duck the responsibility and soon owned up to his mistake.
He said: “I heard a shout from David Ospina, but I reacted a bit late.
“I wanted to clear it but was in two minds and ended up doing the worst thing possible.
“It is my mistake and I apologise. I hold my hands up. But I have to move on and be better next game.
“I always say I give 100 per cent and what happens, happens. If you play well you play well, if you play badly you play badly. But I can always say I gave my all.
“Fortunately I have had a lot of luck and most of it has gone well.”
Finishing as runners-up in their Champions League group has been a longstanding problem for Arsene Wenger’s side as it means they’re a lot more likely to face one of Europe’s superpowers in the last-16.
Will Iwobi be regretting his mistake even more in the spring? We’ll find out soon enough!
