Football fans have blasted Alex Iwobi for his performance in Everton’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s Premier League showdown.
After a dry first half at Goodison Park, a Spurs team without Harry Kane scored in the 63rd-minute after Dele Alli benefited from Alex Iwobi’s horrible pass.
However, the game ended in a draw after Cenk Tosun’s 97th-minute equalizer in a very lively 2nd half.
But still, Iwobi was not spared by fans who were not happy with his poor display despite playing for 90 minutes.
We can only hope the Nigerian had an off day and will be back with amazing performances in games to come.
Alexander Chuka Iwobi, born 3 May 1996, is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Everton and the Nigeria national team.
Iwobi was born in Lagos before moving to England at the age of four, following a brief stay in Turkey, and grew up in Newham, London. His mother is the sister of former professional footballer Jay-Jay Okocha.
Iwobi joined Arsenal while still at primary school, in 2004, and was nearly released by the club at the age of 14 and again at the age of 16.
Iwobi started as a youth international for England, with whom he won the 2011 Victory Shield. Iwobi went on though to play for Nigeria. He made his senior debut for the Super Eagles on 8 October 2015, replacing Ahmed Musa in the 57th minute of a 2–0 friendly defeat to DR Congo in Visé, Belgium.
In April 2019, he said he wanted to emulate his uncle Jay-Jay Okocha by winning the Africa Cup of Nations. He was included in Nigeria’s squad for the 2019 tournament. At the tournament he said he would ignore the labelling of Nigeria as favourites. After the tournament he said he was looking forward to returning to club football with Arsenal.
