Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi has issued a statement following Nigeria’s AFCON exit after they lost 1 – 0 to Tunisia in the Round of 16 last Sunday January 23.


Recall that the Everton star was shown a red card after the referee upgraded his yellow card to a red one following a VAR Review for a bad attack in the 64 minutes, making the game hard to the Naija squad to equalize. 


In the statement, he issued on Instagram, Iwobi thanked fans for their support during the tournament and promised to bounce back with the team. 


He Wrote: 

“Moments Of Joy Can Quickly Turn Into Pain And Anguish. As Much As It’s A Part Of Football, We Came For More.. Our Fans Who Shared These Moments With Us Both In Cameroon And Across The World Deserved More! The Beauty Of The Game Is The Next Moment Of Jubilation Is Never Too Far Round The Corner. We, Will, Be Back To Fight For Our Nation, Stronger. We Owe It To You, And I Owe It To Myself. Thank You For All The Words Of Support & Encouragement – It Doesn’t Go Unnoticed.”
