Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa has apologized to Nigerians following the team’s shambolic second-half performance against Sierra Leone.
The Leone Stars of Sierra Leone did the unthinkable by coming back from four-goal down to draw 4 – 4 against Nigeria in 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifiers on Friday.
The three-time African champions raced to a four goals lead at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, but the Leone star came back and rescued a point to keep their hope of qualifying for the competition alive.
It was the first time Sierra Leone scored four goals in a match for the first time since June 2012 (4-2 vs Sao Time & Principe).
It was also the very first time Sierra Leone has scored 4 goals away from home in their history, dating back to 1949.
Nigeria also conceded 4+ goals at home for the first time since December 13, 1959, in an Olympic qualifier in Lagos (61 years ago).
However Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has now tendered apologies after the game, he said the team will do everything possible to wt a win in Freetown.
