Following the fuss surrounding the Nigeria Football Federation and the national teams, fans were amused for a moment of relief when Super Falcons’ right-back Michelle Alozie named a player she crushes on in the Super Eagles.
Michelle has been the rave of the moment following her impressive outing with the Super Falcons up until the Round of 16 clash with England at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand and recently dropped a bombshell to sustain the trend.
While on a video call session with three other participants, the pretty 26-year-old Houston Dash’s defender was asked if she had admiration for any of the Super Eagles players, just as others do for players in the Super Falcons squad, and who that would be.
“Alex Iwobi” was Michelle’s apt and swift response without further ado.
Unlike Michelle Alozie who was born abroad, specifically in Apple Valley, California, United States, Alexander Iwobi was born in Lagos before moving to England at the age of four, following a brief stay in Turkey with his family, while growing up in Newham, London.
Probably, a half-cast bond, with brown skin complexion, and flowing hairstyles while plying their club trades abroad, could be a few of the similarities shared, given the 12 months and five days existing between the pair’s birth dates.
Michelle Alozie has reportedly returned to the United States of America to rejoin her club side Houston Dash, in a build-up to their next NWSL game against Washington Spirit in 11 days’ time.
Her crush, Iwobi, will be hoping to help Everton to a bright start at home at Goodison Park against Fulham on Saturday.
