Stanley Nwabali, the goalkeeper for the Super Eagles at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cote d’Ivoire, has explained why he yelled at teammate Alex Iwobi during their Friday quarterfinal matchup with Angola.

Ademola Lookman’s goal in the first half of the match helped Nigeria defeat Palancas Negras 1-0 and move on to the competition’s semifinals.

In the 59th minute, Nwabali yelled at Fulham midfielder Iwobi, and the exchange was caught on camera.

That occurred seconds after Zini, the Angolan substitute, nearly tied the score.

Some careless midfield play by the former Arsenal player sparked the Angolan counterattack.

Nwabali told reporters in the mixed zone: “It’s a team game, so everyone needs to switch on; it doesn’t matter, so maybe it was our strategy at that moment. I don’t feel like anything happened, so it’s okay.

“You can see we’ve kept four clean sheets and conceded one goal; the guys are good. Our understanding is getting better as the game goes on. We keep understanding each other.”
