According to 36Naija Sports, Super Eagles winger, Alex Iwobi has revealed on how his Everton teammates mocked him in their training sessions over his poor heading ability.

The Super Eagles forward is delighted that his hard work in training is finally paying off but that hasn’t stopped his new team-mates from teasing his efforts.
“I don’t know what’s been happening, they [teammates] laugh at me when I try to head the ball in training,”.
“But the practice has been paying off. I was just trying keep it on target [against Wolves]. I didn’t know I could jump that high.” Iwobi said
Alex Iwobi is currently away on international duty with the Super Eagles of Nigeria where is he is expected to be part of the team to face Ukraine in an international football friendly match at the Dnipro Arena on Tuesday.
