Everton star Alex Iwobi suffers wardrobe malfunction and forced to come off pitch during crucial away clash at Chelsea

ALEX IWOBI suffered the one costume cock-up no footballer expects.

The midfielder even had to leave the pitch to fix it before returning to help Everton snatch a late 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Iwobi might need to send a footnote to the makers as one boot was ruined

Iwobi’s right boot ripped open down the side – a particularly spectacular sight as… err… the orange footwear ‘complemented’ his pink socks.

But the footwear faux-pas was far from sole-destroying for the Toffees.

Joao Felix and a Kai Havertz penalty twice put Chelsea in front but Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ellis Simms earned Everton a point.

And social media was laced with jibes as an image of Iwobi’s orange outrage attracted acid comments.

One fan posted: “The state of Alex Iwobi’s boot!”

Another said: “He’ll get a refund surely” and a third argued: “Shows you how poorly the boots are made these days.”

And this observer knew what all the fuss was about.

He wrote: “I know, right – who goes with orange shoes on top of pink socks?”


Some fans suggested Iwobi was wearing the wrong size footwear.

And one reckons the issue could in fact be caused by the Nigerian being a bit of a superhero.

But that might not be the compliment it first sounds.

The supporter claimed: “He has a “Hulk foot”.
