Iwobi Mocked By Everton Teammates In Training Over Poor Heading Ability

Nigeria winger Alex Iwobi has revealed his Everton teammates have been mocking his heading in training.

Iwobi has scored two headed goals in two games for the Blues after joining from Arsenal, having only ever scored one headed goal during his time with the Gunners.

Pleased that his work in training is paying off, the winger shared it hasn’t stopped his new team-mates teasing his efforts.

“I don’t know what’s been happening, they [teammates] laugh at me when I try to head the ball in training,”Iwobi told Liverpoolecho.co.uk.

“But the practice has been paying off. I was just trying keep it on target [against Wolves]. I didn’t know I could jump that high.”

Iwobi is now away on international duty with Nigeria where is he is part of the Super Eagles side that will face Ukraine in a friendly at the Dnipro Arena on Tuesday.

  • Let them laugh, Iwobi. By the time you score over 20 goals a season, we will see who will be laughing then.

    Just keep working hard, practice hard and stay focused.

    The prayer is for us to talk about you in the same breath as we talk about the likes of: Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah (amen).
