Cape Town - Calamitous Super Eagles goalkeeper, Chigozie
Agbim has pleaded with Nigerian fans to forgive his floppy display in the first
two games of the on-going African Nations Championship, assuring that he will
be better in subsequent encounters.
Agbim conceded two cheap goals in a 4-2 win over Mozambique
on Wednesday after an earlier floppy performance in a 2-1 loss to Mali last on Saturday.
The now sober Enugu Rangers goalkeeper, who spoke at the
team’s Garden Court De Waal hotel abode in Cape Town said he was the most
disappointed at the display and assured that if given the chance to continue as
the number one goalie of the national team he will make up for past mistakes.
“No goalkeeper in the world will be happy to concede cheap
goals and for a keeper of my caliber I am most disappointed than anyone else
but that is football and I can’t dwell in the past”, he said in a statement.
“I have to forget and plead with fans of the game to
understand and forgive so that we can jointly forge ahead. I promise that I
will do better next time and it’s a promise I wish to keep”.
