AFCON: Iwobi deletes photos on Instagram after backlash from fans
Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi, has deleted all his Instagram photos after he was criticized on social media by some Nigerian fans following the African Cup of Nations final defeat in the hands of host, Ivory Coast, on Sunday.
The Super Eagles were defeated 2-1 by the hosts, ending the team’s dream of a fourth continental crown.
Few hours after the tournament, Iwobi deleted photos from his Instagram handle.
He only left one video post.
The Fulham man also locked the comment section of the post
He featured for 79 minutes in Nigeria’s defeat to Ivory Coast and was replaced by Alhassan Yusuf.
Before the recent development, a similar one took place in the aftermath of the Super Eagles ouster from the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon. Iwobi and teammate Maduka Okoye were also heavily criticised after the team lost to Tunisia in a round of 16 tie, prompting them to disable comments on their social media handles.
