“There is a reason behind Super Eagles poor form” — Alex Iwobi



"There is a reason behind Super Eagles poor form" -- Alex Iwobi

After two games earning 2 points from the World Cup qualifiers for the Nigerian Super Eagles, fans are beginning to run out of patience with the players.

However, Nigeria international and former Everton star, Alex Iwobi reveals the poor run of form for the Super Eagles team may be due to logistical reasons that have impacted the team’s motivation to deliver on the international stage.

Following the consecutive draw against South African country, Zimbabwe on Sunday, the Fulham midfielder opened up to the media to analyze the team’s recent performances;

The former Arsenal product stated in reaction to game;

“Of course, it’s disappointing we should be able to get more points and more goals. We will not dwell on this; we will push and fight to the end to make sure we qualify”

On the logistical reason behind the poor form, Alex Iwobi corroborated the coach’s defense, stating;

“He already (the coach) said the travel was a lot for us. After the first game, we had to fly for four hours and another three hours.

“As players, we shouldn’t use that as an excuse and we have a lot of quality in the side. Like the coach said, the first half wasn’t good enough but the second was better so we have to look at that and see what we can do better to improve.

The Super Eagles midfielder goes on to plead on the patience and support of the fans moving, promising the team will come through for the country.

“It’s just the beginning, I’ll urge the Nigerian fans to stick by us because we will continue to fight,”
