Omeruo apologises to Eagles fans for World Cup ouster

Central defender Kenneth Omeruo has apologised to Nigeria fans for Super Eagles’ disappointing World Cup, which ended in Group Stage elimination.

The Super Eagles landed in Russia with hope of navigating past the Group D at the Mundial.

However, defeats against Croatia and Argentina rendered their win over Iceland meaningless.

“There aren’t many things we can say to you at this moment,” Omeruo told

“The disappointment at coming home too soon has been very big.

“We are very excited about being able to have a good World Cup but it wasn’t like that. We say sorry and we assure you we will work to take the national team back to where it deserves to be.”

Nigeria return to action in September with an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles.
