AFCON 2023: Alex Iwobi sends warning to Super Eagles’ opponents

Following Nigeria’s triumph over Ivory Coast in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, Super Eagles sensation Alex Iwobi has sent out a stern warning to all the teams competing in the tournament.

Iwobi confidently stated that his team fears no opponent in the ongoing AFCON.

It’s worth noting that Nigeria emerged victorious against the host nation, thanks to William Troost-Ekong’s decisive penalty at Abidjan’s Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara.

Speaking to reporters in the mixed zone after the game, Iwobi said: “The formation was different.

“We defended as a team, from Victor to the goalkeeper, everyone defended well so I feel like that formation change helped us.

“We have to concentrate on the next game, we take it game by game but we have the belief that we can do so, we have to wait and see.

“We are afraid of no one but we treat every team with respect.”

Nigeria will face Guinea-Bissau in their final Group A tie on Monday.
