The Vice Captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, William Troost-Ekong, has apologised to Nigerians on behalf of the team for their failure to qualify for Qatar 2022 World Cup.
It should be recalled that the Super Eagles were forced to a 1-1 draw by the Black Stars of Ghana at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja, on Tuesday after a goalless draw in Kumasi on Friday.
NAN reports that the result saw the exit of Nigeria from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later in the year, bringing disappointment to most Nigerian football enthusiasts and fans.
Troost-Ekong posted the apology message on his verified Facebook page on Wednesday.
“To all Nigerians, on behalf of the team, we want to apologise for not securing the World Cup ticket.
“Despite giving it everything possible, it wasn’t meant to be.
“First and foremost, as Nigerians, we share your emotions and we take our responsibility as a group.
“We sincerely thank the Nigerian fans for their overwhelming support, the NFF President who did everything possible to make the qualification happen and of course the Minister.
“A bitter pill to swallow, but believe me we will be back better and stronger,” the post read on Facebook.
