Double celebration for Super Eagles star after AFCON 2019 bronze

Alex Iwobi had another cause to celebrate other than the bronze medal win at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles as the 23-year-old Arsenal forward’s sister, Marie, bagged a first class in Mathematics from university.

The good news was revealed by the Nigeria international’s father, Chuka Iwobi, via a post on social media just a day after the Super Eagles star helped the national team to a 1-0 win over Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles at the AFCON third-fourth playoff match.

“So many reasons to thank the Lord … My Daughter Marie made a First Class in Maths with Actuarial Science,” the senior Iwobi wrote on social media as he expressed his delight at his daughter’s achievement.
