Former Super Eagles striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has vowed that he won’t apologise to Nigerians over the open goal he missed during the 2010 FIFA World Cup Group B match between Nigeria and South Korea in South Africa.
Aiyegbeni missed a superb chance to put Nigeria ahead at the must-win group tie at Durban Stadium on June 22, 2010.
Speaking on the development after over a decade, Aiyebeni told NationTV on Wednesday: “I won’t apologise at all. Why should I? I have scored so many goals for Nigeria too. I have sacrificed a lot for the country. Did anyone apologise to me?
“I cannot apologise because it was not a deliberate miss. I seriously wanted to score.
“But it wasn’t to be. So many strikers have missed chances too, and nobody will apologise so I won’t.”
