Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi was a second half substitute for Everton in their premier league victory over Southampton on Saturday.
Iwobi who replaced Theo Walcott however helped Everton to end a run of four consecutive away losses in the Premier League and it was their first win on the road in nine attempts, previously earning all three points at West Ham in March.
Tom Davies and Brazilian striker Richarlison scored both goals for Everton , while former Liverpool man Danny Ings scored to the Saints.
The win lifted Everton to 13th position on the log and Coach Marco Silva dismissed suggestions that he’s under pressure.
He said : “Why would I be feeling the pressure? I never feel it, which is good for me. For me, football is always a privilege.
“For me, it is how I look to life and to my job. We had a clear objective and we knew they would want to come and show their character and personality. We had to be brave like they would be and enjoy the match – that’s what we did.
“We should’ve taken the three points 15 days ago [against Brighton], but clearly we were the best team on the pitch. The fans deserve to go back home happy with the result and our performance.”
Iwobi will turn his attention to national team assignment ,as he’s listed in Gernot Rohr’s squad for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho.
