Former Everton and Super Eagles international Yakubu Aiyegbeni has come out to say he will never apologise for his World Cup, which caused the exit of Nigerian from the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Yakubu Aiyegbeni missed a golden opportunity to score for the Super Eagles at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
The miss which was against South Korea was a needed goal, but the attacker missed an open net, which every football lover in Nigeria holds against him.
The miss ranked as one of the worst miss at the World Cup held in South Africa for the first time. However, Yakubu Aiyegbeni equalises from the penalty spot after Chinedu Obasi was fouled inside the box.
The game ended 2-2 which was not enough as the Eagles finished bottom of their group with one point, and crashed out of the World Cup. Reflecting on the miss, the Yakubu Aiyegbeni said he sacrificed a lot for Nigeria, so he doesn’t see why he should apologise for a missed goal.

According to him, he said: “I won’t apologise at all. Why should I?” “I’ve scored so many goals for Nigeria too. I have sacrificed a lot for the country. Did anyone apologise to me? It was not a deliberate miss. I seriously wanted to score, but it wasn’t to be.”
