New Super Eagles invitee Akinkunmi Amoo has apologised to Nigerians after the disappointing 1-1 draw against Ghana, which ensured that the Black Stars clinched the Qatar 2022 World Cup ticket on away goals rule.
Nigeria played a goalless draw against Ghana in the first leg at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi. They needed a victory in Abuja to seal qualification to the Mundial.
However, the Ghanaians ensured that the Super Eagles would not be at the World Cup for the first time in 16 years after they picked a 1-1 draw at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.
The result was not a palatable one for many Nigerian fans, as many shared their displeasure with the result.
FC Copenhagen star Amoo followed the footsteps of Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong to send his apology to Nigerian fans after the disappointing result.
Tears and pains, it wasn't the result we wanted. We apologize for not making it to Qatar. I'm honoured for the opportunity, my joy would have been accomplished with a World Cup ticket. Life is about learning, we will bounce back from this setback. We appreciate your support 🇳🇬. pic.twitter.com/BS0ZGoxPqM

The 19-year-old got his first Super Eagles call up for the game against Ghana, but it ended on a sad note, and he did not get the chance to get his first international cap.
