A sober Agbim, who spoke at the team’s Garden Court De Waal hotel abode in Cape Town said he was the most disappointed individual at the display and assured that if given the chance to continue as the number one goalie of the national team he will make up for past mistakes.
“No goalkeeper in the world will be happy to concede cheap goals and for a keeper of my calibre I am most disappointed than anyone else but that is football and I can’t dwell in the past. I have to forget and plead with fans of the game to understand and forgive so that we can jointly forge ahead. I promise that I will do better next time and it’s a promise I wish to keep”, he said.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles winger, Ejike Uzoenyi, who was named Man of the Match, in the 4-2 win over Mozambique on Wednesday has said the award will spur the team to greater heights at the ongoing tournament in South Africa.
“This award is for the entire team and I hope we go all the way and win this tournament for Nigerians”, he said.
The Super Eagles did not take a break as the team were back in training on Thursday evening. Midfielder Ikenna Ene Paul and defence ace, Benjamin Francis are still not fit yet for full training due to hamstring and knee problems but the team doctors are working round the clock to ensure that they get back well in the course of the tournament. Stephen Keshi said, it’s not looking too good but added that the team came to the tournament with 23 players and the others should be able to hold their own against any opposition.
