The shot stopper however conceded thrice in the second half against the North Africans and has been widely criticised by some of the club’s supporters.
He took to the social media to thank his supporters who stood by him in the face of adversity.
“Every champion has once lost a fight (sadly so) but they’ve never lost their dream no matter the opinion about them, nature does conform to them at the right time,” Akpeyi wrote on Instagram.
“To everyone who has been standing with them through thick and thin, I salute your courage, when the limits are broken, all the joy that is assumed to be lost you will receive them in one package I’m grateful to have come this far.”
