2026 FIFA WCQ: Eagles Will Keep Fighting Despite Draw With Zimbabwe — Iwobi

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Midfielder Alex Iwobi believe the Super Eagles will keep pushing hard after they failed to beat Zimbabwe in their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying contest at the Huye Stadium, Butare on Sunday.

Jose Peseiro’s side held their hosts to a 1-1 draw leaving them without a win after two games.

Iwobi said: “We’re disappointed with the players we have, Nigeria is a country with a lot of quality players, we should have been able to get more points and goals. We won’t dwell on this, we’ll keep fighting till the very end to make sure we qualify.”

“He [Jose Peseiro] has already said the travel was a lot for us, after the game [against Lesotho] we had to fly four hours then another three-hour coach down here which was not easy but as a player, we should not use that as an excuse,” he said.

The Super Eagles will take on the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in their next game in the qualifiers in June 2024.
