Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi, is aiming a shock result away at Atletico Madrid in the Europa League on Thursday.

The Gunners need to overturn a 1-1 home draw in Spain to advance to Europe’s second elite club competition.

And Iwobi, who is still nursing a hamstring injury suffered against Manchester United on Sunday, is roaring to fire Arsene Wenger’s team to the final.

“I am still being assessed but to me it is good and I will be okay. We will have to wait and see but I believe I will be okay and fit,” the 21-year-old told Sky Sports.

“We are really motivated – especially by what he has done for the club. We are trying to make him end the season on a high.

“And not just for him but for ourselves as well so we are doing our best to get the result. We are very confident.

“We were unfortunate not to get the result we wanted against them in the first leg but we are very confident and believe we can go to the final.”
