2013 Afcon winner and Nigerian Striker Ike Uche has joined the many voices around the world showing support to Mexico after a 7.1 Magnitude earthquake devastated parts of the Country.
Former Super Eagles striker Ikechukwu Uche has sent a message of support to the people of Mexico following Tuesday’s night earthquake that claimed many lives, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Over 200 were reportedly killed when many were trapped under collapsed buildings after a 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico’s capital, Mexico City.
Tuesday’s earthquake came more than one week after a magnitude-8.1 earthquake struck off the southern coast of the country, in the state of Oaxaca, killing at least 90.
Ike Uche ‘s major affiliation with Mexico in football came in the 2015/16 season when he joined Mexican top flight side, Tigres UANL.
Albeit he did not play any official game for the club in that season, Tigres and Mexico must have left an emotional mark on him.
On Tuesday, the 33-year-old tweeted, Mucha Fuerza a todos mis hermanos de México 🙏🙏 Estoy con vosotros. #FuerzaMiMexico #PrayForMexico
Translated it means: Much strength to all my brothers of Mexico 🙏🙏 I am with you. #FuerzaMiMexico #PrayForMexico
