Exclusive – Alex Iwobi Ready To Quit Super Eagles, Deletes All Pictures From His Page


Barring a last minute change of mind Fulham midfielder Alex Iwobi will announce his decision to quit international football with Nigeria, OwnGoalNigeria.com can exclusively reveal.

Iwobi was part of the team that lost 1-2  in yesterday’s Africa Cup of Nations final to the host Cote d’Ivoire. He was subbed off for Alhassan Yusuf during the course of the game.

All through the tournament he has been the target of a lot of critics online for his below par showing and even when he tries to explain how a new role has reduced his efficiency, the criticisms didn’t stop coming.


Capped 76 times by Nigeria, the first of which came in 2015, the 27 year old has also deleted all post and pictures regarding the Super Eagles from his Instagram page. An announcement on his decision to quit international is said to be imminent.

The 2023 AFCON is his third for the team after participating in the 2019 and 2021 editions. He was also a part of the team that played at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, with his goal in the qualifiers against Zambia helping the Super Eagles to seal a spot at the tournament.
