Jay Jay Okocha has revealed that he will give his nephew Alex Iwobi tips on how to win the African Cup of Nations AFCON taking place this June.
Okocha who won the tournament in 1994 will be looking forward to seeing his nephew follow in his footstep to excel at the competition holding in Egypt from June 21 to July 19.
I think he (Iwobi) has done so well since making his debut for the Eagles, and for me the good thing about him is that he can only get better. He’s a very humble young man willing to learn every day and that shows in his performance. He keeps getting better and improving each day, and I hope he will achieve that dream of winning it on his first try.”
“Of course, I will try and chip in some advice for him to achieve that (win the AFCON). It’s a massive opportunity. I was thinking it was going to be easy to win it again after we won it in 1994 but it was not possible for the team until after I retired from football.
“So, it’s a massive opportunity and it is good for some of us to pass that information to all these young ones, for them to realise that you might only get one chance to win it.”
