The French national team coach Didier Deschamps has claimed the reason why he snubbed Arsenal inform striker Alexandre Lacazette from his national team is because of the competition in the team.

Deschamps had refused the former Lyon striker from the World Cup team and that has not changed with the call for the UEFA nations league despite the fine form of the player.

In his defence, the French boss stated that the Arsenal striker must work harder to earn a place because of the competition in the team.

He added that the players who won the World Cup are still at their best; hence it might be difficult for new additions.

He made it clear that the attack position, in particular, has been very competitive which makes it difficult for him to find a space in the team.

Lacazette has scored 5 goals in all competitions this season with his latest brace against Fulham on Sunday.

His fine form has caught the attention of the football world and that has earned him a place in FIFA team of the week.

Arsenal attacking midfielder Alex Iwobi has been in great form with the Gunners team having improved in his game and helped his team deliver good results with his assists.

Iwobi has never had it this good in his career as a first-team player since his emergence in the 2015/2016 season failing to be consistent in his performance.

The coming of new manager Unai Emery has been praised for raising the standard of the Nigerian’s game. The evidence of Iwobi’s improvement under the Spanish manager is very glaring to see.

Iwobi’s form has been replicated with the national team when he did provide an assist to China based striker Odion Ighalo with a killer pass in the Saturday’s AFCON qualifiers.

He was one of the best on the field amongst the team that defeated Libya on Saturday evening.

This, therefore, got Nigerians talking, especially singing the praise of the North London manager Emery for doing a good job on Iwobi.

The Nigerian football followers believe that the Spanish manager is all responsible for the good that has happened to the 22-year-old.

Meanwhile, the Super Eagles will now travel to face Tunisia to play the second leg of the AFCON qualifier game against Libya.
