    Diaspora, Africa – (African Boulevard News) – Everton secured a crucial 5-1 victory over Brighton on Saturday at the Amex Stadium, thanks in part to an outstanding performance from Nigerian forward, Alex Iwobi. The Toffees’ victory saw them climb out of the relegation zone and provided a much-needed boost to their Premier League survival bid.

    The match saw Everton take an early lead through Richarlison’s goal in the 16th minute. However, Brighton responded immediately, with Pascal Gross scoring the equalizer just four minutes later. Everton regained the lead in the 33rd minute through a superb strike from Iwobi, who received the ball from Abdoulaye Doucoure and drilled it into the bottom corner of the net.

In the 47th minute, Iwobi’s cross was deflected into the Brighton net by defender Adam Webster. The Nigerian international wasn’t done yet, and in the 65th minute, he scored his second goal of the match, picking up a loose ball in the box and finishing calmly past the keeper.

    Everton’s fifth and final goal of the game came from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who had replaced Richarlison in the second half. His powerful header in the 73rd minute put the game beyond doubt and secured a significant three points for the Toffees.

    Speaking after the game, Everton manager Rafael Benitez praised his team’s performance, especially Iwobi’s impact on the game. He said, “We know Alex’s quality, and today he was outstanding. He was involved in everything we did well, and his two goals were fantastic. I’m delighted for him and the team.”
