2021 AFCON Qualifiers: Musa Apologises To Nigerians After Shock Draw Vs Sierra Leone

2021 AFCON Qualifiers: Musa Apologises To Nigerians After Shock Draw Vs Sierra Leone

Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa has apologised to Nigerian fans following Friday’s shock 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone, in the 2021 AFCON qualifier.

The Eagles went 4-0 up following a dominant start against the Leone Stars thanks to a brace from Alex Iwobi and goals from Samuel Chukwueze and Victor.

The visitors scored late in the first half before completing the comeback in the second half.

And reacting to the result, Musa  promised the Eagles will bounce back from the disappointment, and get a favourable result in the reverse fixture in Freetown on Tuesday.

“Dear Nigerians on behalf of myself and my teammates we are really sorry for the disappointment for the game,” Musa said in a video published on the Super Eagles verified Twitter handle.

“We know we made a very big mistake in the game but there’s nothing we can do, that’s football, sometimes we win sometimes we lose. But we are going to correct our mistake in the next game Insha Allah.

“We are going there and do our best to 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 for the game, we will make it up.”

  • Shut up. You don’t deserve to qualify with your no-idea coach.

      Shocking rebuke. Where’s the Christian tenets of forgiveness and turning a new leaf?

      Musa we accept your apology. Many things are beyond your control. Rohr, for instance has to upgrade his tactical prowess in the game. Dare and Pinnick have to repent for their foolishness in distractingly the practice session of our players. They looked down on S/L, which has affirmed that they are no pushovers. They’ll even be more confident on their own turf. How about Pinnick’s evolving tendency to take crucial matches to obscure stadiums when the plush UYO stadium is lying fallow? Are we to believe that he’s doing this for free?

      God save us from impulsive, disruptive decisions from our so-called leaders. 

    • U are a big idiot nd animal at same time,look at u using a christian id and still insult people fool

    The Captain has apologised. But what about the coach???

    Maybe he thinks it is no big deal we surrendered a four goal lead at hime. Afterll, we have a young team…

  • I understand how Christian ministry feel, but there is always a place of forgiveness,I think its high time managers of our football understands that football is a religion in this country, the earlier the best o, we have complained about the coach tactics a long time ago, but what do we get, tabbing by die hard fans of Rohr, against Argentina @the world cup, Algeria @ Nations cup, now this woeful performance yesterday, we can’t cope with this anymore let this man go or we prepare for more heartache as nothing to me is gonna change.

  • I’ve been surfing the internet to see whether any of our “SELF-ACCLAIM” legends would come out to say anything concerning the wonders in BENIN on friday but found none.

    As we all know b4 now, if things like this happens u would see them in numbers coming out to spew their hate speech but this time around they all remain muted.
    A reasonable man would ask why?
    Let nobody tell me that something isn’t fishy here.

    They keep intimidating Rohr to the point that the man finally plays into their tone & they caught him red handed.

    I guest they’re in their parlours now laughing at him.
    Thinking the graph they plotted works well.

    I want to hear their voices & criticism now if they know their hands are free from this mess.

    Nobody can convince me that either of PINNICK, DARE, NFF & Self acclaim legends/ex aren’t aware of what happened in Benin.
    I can see their hand-writting on that game.

    Or moreso; it could be a kind of the rummoured match “BOYCOTT” in respect to the deceased at toll gate.

    Only time would tell…

      @UBFE… You are a nuisance even unto yourself. Go and wear Sack cloth and cover your face with ashes… Lol.

    Unseriousness, Complacency, Indiscipline….from the players, the coach, and the administrators. Same complacency vs Benin cost us a goal…same complacency in lesotho cost us 2 goals we shouldnt have conceeded, same complacency cost us harmless goals vs Algeria and Tunisia…goals that we ordinarily shouldnt conceed if y’all and playing like you life dpends on it. And against S/L……shocking….! Balls floated into the 18 yard box and each time the S/L nods the ball ahead of 2 CDs….??? That is unacceptable….from all of you.

    The National team is not a holiday inn. All of you must either shape in or shape out. Seems you are all beginning to get too comfortable, that’s why everything and anything goes. If we have been giving you support its not because we dont have the big stick to lash you, its because we choose to stand by you in good and bad times and lift you up when the world is against you, to give you a benefit of doubt. But if strolling on the pitch like big-boys when there is fire on the mountain is the attitude y’all want to start giving then I am sorry for y’all. Pikin wey say in mama nor go sleep him too nor go sleep.

    Just go to freetown and beat the same S/L 4-0. That is the only apology we need from all of you.

      Dr Drey, this is what we have been saying since the last AFCON!

      The problem with our dear Super Eagles is their collective mentality. And it is the responsibility of the coach to instill the right mentality into them.

      I am of the opinion that he is too laid back and is not imparting enough drive into the players.

      I sincerely don’t mean to discredit the coach, but he has to work on the players. They have no winning mentality.

      The buck stops at his table.

  • It’s time to cry havoc and let sleet the dogs of war. Go to Sera Leon and come back with nothing but victory Captain.
