Nigeria centre forward Odion Ighalo has apologized to Nigerians after last night’s AFCON 2019 semi-finals 2-1 defeat to Algeria.

The Super Eagles’ AFCON 2019 dream ended with the last kick of the game when Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez superbly struck the winner from a free-kick and just minutes after Ighalo has equalized for Nigeria via a penalty set-piece.

Ighalo has expressed his pained regret to Nigerian media during the game’s post-match conference.

The West African will next take on Tunisia in a third-place battle this Wednesday evening at 20:00 (Nigeria time).
