Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has apologized to supporters following the team’s shaky start to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The West African national team struggled against Lesotho in their first qualifying match, ending in a 1-1 draw.
The Eagles played Zimbabwe again in the second match on Sunday at the Hue Stadium in Butare, Rwanda, drawing 1-1.
Simon and his teammates have come under heavy criticism for their poor play in both games.
The Nantes player made a plea to his fans on social media.
“It wasn’t the result we wanted, but we will bounce back,” the former Levante player wrote in X.
“We are very sorry to our fans. They deserved a better performance than the ones we had against Lesotho and against Zimbabwe. It’s time to come back stronger.”
The Super Eagles will host South Africa in their next match in June 2024.
