WorldCup: Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho apologizes for his mistake against Ghana in the play off

Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has emerged to apologize after his howler assisted Ghana with tying down capability to the World Cup, Qatar 2022, in front of the Super Eagles.

The Eagles were held to a 1-1 impasse by the Black Stars in the second leg of the play-off at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja last week, which saw the Ghanaians cruising through to the Mundial.

Ghana came to the World Cup in Qatar in the not-so-distant future on away objective benefit following a goalless draw at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi in the primary leg.

Uzoho was Nigeria's most splendid spot in the primary leg after his remarkable presentation kept the Super Eagles in the game for certain vital recoveries.

Nonetheless, his howler in the return leg in Abuja as he neglected to manage a Thomas Party long-range shot gave the Black Stars the immensely significant away objective to seal capability for the World Cup.

The 23-year-old shot plug took to his Instagram page to apologize to Nigerian football fans following the mistake.

"These recent days have been the most awful in my life," Uzoho composed.

"I needed to take my country to Qatar yet rather did the inverse. I know how football affects all of you, and to myself, I can't vow to commit errors once more, but rather I can vow not to surrender until I bring back that grin on your appearances. Much obliged to you for the help and God's favor."
