Awoniyi Apologises For Flying Eagles Defeat

Awoniyi Apologises For Flying Eagles Defeat

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Flying Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi has expressed regret over the inability of the team to reach the quarter-finals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.

Nigeria bowed out of the tournament after losing 1-0 to European champions, Germany, in Christchurch on Thursday in a Round of 16 game.

Awoniyi cut a lone figure in Nigeria’s attack in the game but the striker states that despite the disappointment of not defeating Germany, he remains thankful to God.

“Once again I’m using this medium to say thank you to our darling fans for the support and all. We are also very sorry for the loss (against Germany). I believe we tried our best but God knows the best…so sorry for disappointing you. I love you all,” Awiniyi wrote on his Facebook wall.

“Ancient of days, King of kings, Lord of lords, to you I return all glory. For you said in all (situations) we should give thanks to you. Thank you Lord for everything because you remain the same yesterday, today and forever more…bless your name LORD JESUS.”

    Awoniyi has nothing to apologize about. Nduka the puppet master and his puppet Garba made the wrong selections based on greed. Awoniyi should only have been a substitute in this tournament when Nigeria and Africa’s best strikers started from the bench. That boy is not close to being ready to start at this level. In fact, more than half of the team that bribed there way into the starting line up should not have been at the U20. Nigeria is again the laughing stock of youth football because of corruption.
