VIDEO: Arsenal target Oboabona scores free-kick for Nigeria

Nigeria Fan Celebrates AFCON

Godfrey Oboabona, a reported transfer target for Arsenal, was on the scoresheet for the Super Eagles in World Cup qualifying.

Godfrey Oboabona is viewed as arguably Nigeria's most talented star still playing in his homeland.

The 22-year-old centre-back is a senior international and helped the Super Eagles lift the African Nations Cup earlier this year.

Before they head off to the Confederations Cup, they had to play an important World Cup qualifying match away to Namibia, a match which took place on astroturf.

Oboabona complained about the surface ahead of the game, but it did not stop him scoring a crucial equaliser late on in a 1-1 draw.

The defender was earlier this year claimed by Sky Sports to be heading over to Arsenal for a trial, a move which did not transpire, but the Gunners will likely be keeping a watchful eye over his performances at the Confederations Cup.

You can check out his goal below, which can be seen at 25 seconds into the video:

Not bad feet for a defender? A good cheap option for the Gunners?
