Super Eagles apologise for CHAN ouster

28 January 2016, 15:06

Lagos - Members of the home based Super Eagles have pleaded to Nigerians for forgiveness after crashing out of the 2016 African Nations Championship in Rwanda.

The Sunday Oliseh-led side suffered a 1-0 loss to Guinea in the final Group C on Tuesday, a result that saw them finish third behind Tunisia and Guinea.

Goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa expressed sadness over the team’s ouster and has begged Nigerians to have mercy on the squad.

“I’m really sad that we got booted out in the manner we did and I still can’t believe it. I want to personally apologise to Nigerians for letting them down. We really wanted to win, we wanted to win it for the fans but it’s a pity it turned out this way,” he told supersport.com

Also, Warri Wolves midfielder Ikechukwu ‘Mosquito’ Ibenegbu was also angered by the defeat and asked Nigerians to forgive the team for the first round ouster.

“We started well and I was hoping we would go all the way and make Nigerians proud but it was not meant to be. Everyone in camp is sad as well I must admit.

“We are sorry for the ouster, it was never in our plans to go out of the tournament like that.
