Iwobi gutted by Super Eagles defeat to Algeria’s Desert Foxes

Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi is gutted by the Nigeria’s 0-1 defeat to Algeria’s desert Foxes during Friday’s international friendly in Austria.

The encounter against the African champions was the Gernot Rohr tutored’s side first game since beating Lesotho 4 – 2 in African Cup of Nations qualifiers back in November 2019.


Iwobi, who was in action for about 85 minutes failed to impress and was replaced by debutant Samson Tijani with five minutes left on the clock.

Reacting to the disappointing result, Iwobi said the team gave their all, but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough.
