Premier League club Everton have called on their supporters in the United States, to show support to their Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi ahead of the friendly game between the Super Eagles and Ecuador.
The Eagles will play their second friendly in the United States when they face 2022 World Cup-bound Ecuador.
In their first game on Sunday, the Eagles lost 2-1 to Mexico in Dallas in new head coach Jose Peseiro’s first game in charge.

And ahead of the game of the Eagles’ second friendly, the Toffees wrote on their Everton in the USA Twitter handle: “@NGSuper Eagles and @alexIwobi are playing Ecuador tonight at @RedBullArena–not the same as seeing him in blue but go ahead and give him your support if you’re in the area!”
Iwobi missed the 2022 World Cup playoffs against Black Stars of Ghana due to suspension.
He was sent off in the 2021 AFCON round of 16 game between the Eagles and Tunisia which the latter won 1-0.
