Two more Gunners were in action for their countries on Saturday. Scroll down to find out how they got on:
Alex Iwobi claimed an assist in Nigeria’s 4-0 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying win over Libya. After being brought down in the box, Odion Ighalo netted from the spot to give the Super Eagles a first-half lead.
Iwobi then set up Ighalo’s second with an inch-perfect through ball, with the former Watford striker claiming his hat-trick soon after. Samuel Kalu then completed the scoring in the 90th minute to see Nigeria rise to second in qualification Group E.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan captained Armenia in their Uefa Nations League defeat to Gibraltar. Joseph Chipolina scored the game’s only goal, slotting home from the spot to secure Gibraltar’s first points.
Bernd Leno was an unused substitute in Germany’s Nations League defeat to Netherlands. Virgil van Dikj gave the hosts a first-half lead and, despite Joachim Low ringing the changes in the second period, Netherlands secured all three points thanks to Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum’s late strikes.
