"A lot has been said about our tactics for the game but the truth is we the players, didn't execute properly what the coaches asked of us.

"If any arm of the team needs to be blamed, it’s us not the coaches and by the grace of God we will make amends in our next game.

Nigeria will face bottom of the group team North Korea on Thursday, a game they need an outright victory to maintain their push for a spot in the next round.
