“Like the coach said, the first half wasn’t good enough, the second half was better, so we have to look at that, analyse and see what we can do better to improve,” Iwobi said while talking about the game against Zimbabwe.

He then went on to solicit support, “But it’s just the beginning, I’ll just need the Nigerian fans to stick by us because we will continue to fight.”
