"I wouldn't say it was comfortable but we made it as easy as we could,” Iwobi told BBC Sport.

“It is always good to win the game and come away with a clean sheet.

“It was a great team play. I didn't think Alexis would find me but it shows the skill he has. He is capable of doing anything. To have eyes in the back of his head and back-heel to me was amazing."
