AFCON 2019: Nigerian and Arsenal star Alex Iwobi exclusive interview

AFCON 2019: Nigerian and Arsenal star Alex Iwobi exclusive interview

Nigeria had one day's rest more than Algeria, who needed extra time and penalties to squeeze past Ivory Coast on Thursday, but Rohr doesn't believe that will play a factor in Cairo. So often they have been the one eliminated in such circumstances so it's possibly testament to a different mindset. We knew the goal would eventually come and had to be patient.

"I am not bothered about emerging as the highest scorer".

Nigeria Preview - Can Nigeria's forwards propel them to an eighth AFCON final? "It was a hard decision but Nigeria is where I feel more at home", the Gunners playmaker explained. "They were different players", recalled Belmadi.

The Super Eagles have been much matured in their approach, keeping their feet on the ground, cautious but able to smell opportunities to strike and able to swing games in their favour even toward the end. Nigeria have been slightly less impressive, squeezing past Burundi and Guinea to qualify from the group mathematically and then losing 2-0 to Madagascar - perhaps taking their eye off the ball.

Nigeria booked their place in the semis after edging South Africa's Bafana Bafana, thanks to a late goal last Wednesday.

A great number of celebrities are now speaking out in support of the rapper and shining a light on his unacceptable arrest. At a later date, someday later, however, he has been visited. "He does not know any other information in the TMZ article".

However Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is confident his men will be ready for action against the Desert Foxes. He's popular among the players and has achieved his objective of qualifying the nation for the semi-finals.

"Before starting the tournament our goal was to reach the semi-finals, but now we want to win this Afcon title".

According to the statement, Lawan who spoke before his departure said the presence of the delegation in Egypt would boost the morale of the Nigerian players and spur them to win the crucial match.

Nigeria and Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has acknowledged that while his team has developed momentum as the tournament has worn on, they're remaining as grounded as possible.
