Alex Iwobi has deleted all his Instagram pictures after Nigeria’s 2023 AFCON final loss to Ivory Coast, MySportDab reports.

Iwobi was key to the Super Eagles squad playing as a midfielder throughout the tournament. He regularly starts ahead of his competitor Moses Simon.

In the final against Cote D’Ivoire, Nigeria head coach Jose Peseiro started Alex Iwobi before bringing on Moses Simon with the game ending in a loss for the Super Eagles.

Since the loss, some Nigeria fans have blamed Iwobi for his poor performance in the game, insisting he did not do enough after over 45 minutes of action.

Apparently bumping into incessant criticisms on social media after the AFCON defeat, Iwobi took a rather shocking move, deleting all his posts on social media today.

His decision to clear his Instagram is obviously linked to the heavy backlash he has received on social media after the match.
