Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo, says he takes full responsibilities for the team’s loss at yesterday’s match against Argentina.
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.
