The Super Eagles have apologised to Nigerians for failing to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations after going down 1-0 to Egypt in Alexandria last night.

Ramadan Sobhi’s second-half effort settled the keenly contested tie at the Borg El Arab Stadium to leave the Pharaohs on seven points, five ahead of Nigeria who have a game in hand.

The defeat makes it a second consecutive Afcon miss for Nigeria and third out of four, leaving the country in a bad state going into the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

As the football-crazy nation continues to grapple with the sad reality of the current state of their national team, the players have sent a message of apology to the entire country.

Writing on the official Twitter handle of the team, @NGSuperEagles, the distraught players asked for a united front ahead of the world Cup qualifiers starting October.

“We apologise for our inability to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. We gave this campaign our best efforts but sadly fell short. We know how disappointed our fans are and we feel their pains too but we ask that they forgive us and never stop getting behind us in the future. Now our focus is to get these setbacks behind us and quickly regroup for the fast-approaching 2018 World Cup qualifiers starting in October.”
