Alex Iwobi Deletes Instagram Photos Amid Criticisms After AFCON 2023 Final Loss

Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi, has deleted all the photos on his official Instagram page following criticisms after Nigeria’s 2-1 loss to Ivory Coast in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final. The check by Vanguard confirmed that only one video remains on his account, shared ten weeks ago, with the comment section locked.

Iwobi was one of the players facing criticism after Nigeria’s defeat in the AFCON final. The Fulham midfielder featured for 79 minutes in the match, where the Eagles failed to secure their fourth AFCON championship. He was subsequently replaced by Alhassan Yusuf for the last 10 minutes of the game.

It’s not uncommon for public figures, including athletes, to adjust their social media presence in response to public reactions, and Iwobi’s action might be a reflection of the emotional impact of the criticism.
