AFCON: Alex Iwobi reveals only problem coach Eguavoen will have in knockout stages

Super Eagles and Everton forward, Alex Iwobi, has revealed that Coach Austin Eguavoen would have selection problems in the next stage of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Iwobi said this is so because the fringe players have shown the gaffer that they are fully deserving to be in the starting XI.

The Super Eagles with majority of the fringe players recorded a 2-0 victory over hard-fighting Guinea Bissau on Wednesday, being the last of Group D.

Nigeria took all nine points from the group, beating Egypt, Sudan and Guinea Bissau.


“I am excited to be part of a country that has so many talented players,” Iwobi told reporters on Wednesday.

“The only problem is that the coach may have a headache because he doesn’t know who to choose but it’s a good headache to have.

“Whether you are starting or you are going to come on, everyone gives one hundred percent and we have the quality to do so.”
