The Super Eagles crashed out of the 2018 FIFA world cup after they failed to beat the Argentinian team.

Ighalo missed a few chances to score goals that could have secured a win for the Nigerian team.

In a chat with TheCable, Ighalo said he takes full responsibility for the loss of the match and has already apologised to his teammates. He said;

“I apologise to Nigeria. I apologise to my team mates. I take responsibility for this game because I had taken those chances I had that would have made it a different ball game now. But that is football and life has to continue.”

“It’s a sad day for me, the boys and the country because we went out in a bad manner and we deserved more in the gam. We had a penalty in the game and another one which the referee did not give.

I missed a couple of chances that would have finished the game but that’s football because sometimes you win and sometimes to lose.”

Argentina defeated Nigeria 2-1 in the final group D fixture with a late goal from Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo deciding the fixture.
