World Cup Qualifiers: Alex Iwobi accuses Zimbabwe of time wasting tactics



By Monsurah Olatunji

Nigeria forward, Alex Iwobi insists the time-wasting tactics by their opponents was one of the reasons for Nigeria 1-1 draw against Zimbabwe in their second World Cup qualifying match.
Iwobi played for the duration of the game as the Super Eagles had to come back from behind to draw against Zimbabwe in a hard-fought encounter in Huye Stadium, Rwanda.
The 27-year-old ex-Everton star accused the Zimbabweans of time wasting.
“Of course, it is easy for them when they get the first goal, it is easier so they can just sit back and defend,” Iwobi told media.
“And of course, they have the tactics to try and waste time and slow down the tempo of the game, so it favored them.
“But yeah, credit to them, they are a good side but with the players we have, we should have done much better.”
