Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo said he takes responsibility for the missed opportunities that came the way of the team in their last group D match against Argentina.
Ighalo came in for misfiring Kelechi Iheanacho in the second half, but he too turned out to be a misfit as missed two gearing scoring chances. Goals that could put Argentina away.
"I apologise to Nigeria. I apologise to my teammates. I take responsibility for this game because I had taken those chances I had that would have made it a different ball game now.
"It's a sad day for me, the boys and the country because we went out in a bad manner and we deserved more in the game. that's football because sometimes you win and sometimes to lose."
