Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi has scooped his first award since his return from African Cup of Nations duties with Nigeria in Ivory Coast, reports OwoSports.com.

His dramatic winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford has been voted Fulham’s Goal of the Month for February.

After a late Harry Maguire equaliser had looked set to rob us of two points, substitute Adama Traoré embarked on a barnstorming run to create a counter-attacking opportunity for the Whites.

After running half the length of the pitch, he fed Iwobi to his left, whose impeccable touch sent Amad Diallo and Diogo Dalot out of blocking range, before giving Andre Onana the eyes and placing an effort inside the near post.
The deserved 97th-minute winner will go down as one of our great Premier League moments and duly garnered 57.2 per cent of the fan vote.

Rodrigo Muniz’s lob at Burnley came second with 13%, ahead of the Brazilian’s clever finish versus Aston Villa (8.5%) and Callum Osmand’s excellent control, swivel and shot versus Everton Under-21s (8%).
