Arsenal star and Nigerian international, Alex Iwobi has admitted he can’t sing the Nigerian national anthem.
Iwobi, who scored the goal that saw the Super Eagles to the Russia World Cup against Zambia made the revelation while being quizzed by Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry and Philadelphia Eagles star, Jay Ajayi.
He expressed he didn’t know the words to the Nigerian national anthem too well, proposing that he mouths along to the hymn when the camera was centered around him before the beginning of international matches.
“I know it but I don’t know it well. When they are recording, the camera comes on you I know what to say. For the Nigerian viewers I do know it.”
Talking about scoring the goal that qualified the Super Eagles for the 2018 World Cup he said:
“When I scored I saw my parents in the crowd, I was almost crying. It was a nice feeling.”
