Super Eagles winger Simon tender apology to fans


Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has tendered an apology to their supporters following the team’s shaky start to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The West Africans laboured to a 1-1 draw against Lesotho in their opening game in the qualifiers.

The Eagles also rallied to a 1-1 draw against Zimbabwe in their second game at the Huye Stadium in Butare, Rwanda, on Sunday.

Simon and his teammates have come under intense criticism for their shoddy displays in both games.

The Nantes player took to social media to beg fans.

“Not the result we wanted but we will surely bounce back,” the former Levante player wrote on X.

“Big apologies to our fans; you deserve better than the performance against Lesotho and Zimbabwe. We have overcome so many challenges in the past. And now is the time to reflect and come back stronger.”

The Super Eagles will host South Africa in their next game in June 2024
