Solomon Dalung,Amaju Pinnick,Samson Siasia apologise to Nigerians

Nigeria’s Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, President of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick and Interim Coach of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia have apologised to Nigerians over the Super Eagles inability to qualify for Gabon 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I personally apologise to Nigerians for the inability of the Super Eagles to qualify for the campaign to AFCON. We must plan better again,” the Minister said in a tweet.

The Eagles crashed out of the race to Gabon after they were beaten 1-0 by the Pharaohs of Egypt in Alexandria, Cairo Tuesday night.

Pinnick who also spoke shortly after the arrival of the delegation to Egypt at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Stadium, Abuja said; “I’m not very happy with the result and I’m very sad that we lost out in the race. Nigerians should forgive us. It is just that the god of soccer was not on our side. I wonder why we could not hold on to our lead in Kaduna.”

Siasia was also quoted to have said;

“We are on a broken bridge which we could not fix. I felt disappointed. I will only beg for Nigerians’ forgiveness. We were not lucky despite playing good game in the two matches,” he said.
