    Alexander the king IWOBI. Enjoy but please don’t get drunk with all these praises. Better to continue in humility and work even harder to polish grey areas.

  • I never thought Alex could play as a holding midfielder. I have always seen him as a creative or attacking midfielder. But hardwork and determination has really enabled him up his game. I like his energy level. He can run and run for 90 mins. What he needs is who will compliment him in the super Eagles midfield. . Ndidi is more of a standing midfielder so he should be the defensive midfielder. Iwobi has loads of energy so he should be given the creative midfield position then the team needs one more midfielder who can both support the defense and attack . A box to box player. We have aribo, yusuf and raphael. Hopefully one of them will slot into the position to make the teams midfield more stronger.
