Nigeria goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali has outrightly condemned the cyber attack on Iwobi at the 2023 Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.
Iwobi came under heavy scathing criticism on the Nigerian social media space which culminated in him deleting his pictures on Instagram.
Nwabali was sad about the whole incident and admitted everyone wants to win. He believes of it had happened to him, he would have broken down as he urged fans to wish the team well at all time.
The shot stopper said he was emotional about what Iwobi had to go through including Maduka Okoye, and Francis Uzoho.
“It is not really nice to be honest, I know the country we find ourselves in, everyone is desperate to win, everyone needs this cup, even when we are playing against the biggest team in the world, we want to win,” Nwabali was quoted by Arise News.
“When you talk about Alex, to be honest, sometimes, I feel emotional during the time of Maduka, Francis Uzoho, I look at Francis and tell him, bro; you’re a man, it’s not easy, a lot of players always break down, to be really honest, if it happens to me, I am going to break down.
“Before the AFCON, in the interview I granted, I told them: a lot of people are waiting for me to make a mistake, then they show themselves in the internet. It’s not nice, we really need to wish everyone well.”
Nwabali was the major revelation of the 2023 AFCON with his four clean sheets in seven appearances.
