I don’t want to be too controversial, but I believe that children are our future. Alex Iwobi must believe that too, as he recently visited Rickmansworth School last week, per the St. Albans and Harpenden review.

While there he kicked the ball around with some students, held a Q+A session, and played FIFA with one of the students.

Iwobi was there to support the English Schools’ Football Association PlayStation Schools’ Cup. The rather extensively titled tournament is apparently the largest schools’ soccer tournament in England.

“I was delighted to be asked to help encourage more kids to get involved in the PlayStation Schools’ Cup, which has grown into the biggest grassroots football competition in the country,” Iwobi said. “Seeing the passion and enthusiasm from pupils at Rickmansworth School was great to see and there were certainly some talented future stars on show.”

Who knows, maybe Wenger will sign one or two of them? Anyways, good for you Alex.
