‘Nigerians still send me messages’ – Ayegbeni talks about famed World Cup miss



Yakubu Ayegbeni says Nigerians are yet to forgive him for his miss against South Korea at the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

The ex-Everton man has no regrets playing for the Super Eagles, though he feels stunned Nigerians won’t forget his point blank miss during that match, which Nigeria eventually drew.

After defeats to Argentina and Greece, Lars Lagerback’s men needed a win to qualify for the Round of 16, however, they could only secure a 2-2 at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The major talking point of the game was Ayegbeni’s unbelievable miss from three yards into an open goal, after rolling the effort wide with goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong completely beaten.
