Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa apologized for his team’s performance against Sierra Leone in the AFCON qualifying game on Friday at Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
The Super Eagles survived the game with one point after blowing a four-goal lead. Nigeria already had four goals before the half hour, but fell apart in the second half.
Musa, who was substituted in the second half, took to Instagram to apologize for himself and his teammates.
He said: “On behalf of myself and my teammates, we are very sorry for the disappointment in tonight’s game. We know we made a big mistake in the game, but there is nothing we can do, that is football, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
“We are going to correct our mistake in the next game. Let’s see that we qualify for the AFCON and we know we can do it.
“On behalf of myself and my teammates, we are very sorry.”
Nigeria continues to lead the group with 7 points from 3 matches, while Sierra Leone has 1 point.
The return leg will be held on November 17.
