Iwobi looks to end FA Cup drought against National League side


Alex Iwobi last scored in the FA Cup on January 5 2019 in a third-round FA Cup game between Arsenal and  Blackpool.

The wells have been dry ever since and the Super Eagles star is yet to find the back of the net in more than three years.

Against Boreham Wood, a National League side, Iwobi has the chance to upturn his dry spell in the world’s oldest football competition.

Boreham Wood have ruffled feathers so far in the FA Cup, defeating Bournemouth in the Fourth Round and may cause Everton some problems.

Iwobi was often time a forlorn figure at Goodison Park under Spanish manager Rafael Benitez but a lot has changed since the arrival of Frank Lampard.

He has started all three games under Lampard and if featured against Boreham Wood, it will be his 85th Everton appearance.

The Super Eagles midfielder won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2017.

Iwobi’s Everton have also extended a beautiful gesture to Boreham Wood, as they will sponsor their kit for the game. Boreham Wood’s white jersey is the same as the colour of Everton’s shorts and socks.

The black outfit is one-time as Boreham Wood can’t wear it in the league where referees’ apparels are black.
