Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has apologised for Nigeria's defeat to Sudan in their 2015 African Nations Cup qualifiers over the weekend.

Nigeria was beaten 1-0 in Khartoum and has now thrown their qualification chances into jeopardy.

Keshi on arrival to Nigeria on Sunday pleaded with the fans to bear with them for throwing away an opportunity to close the gap on other teams in the group.

“I must ask you to help me apologise to Nigerians for this loss because they have so much belief in this team and here we are disappointing them,” Keshi said.

“The day was simply not ours, because we had a couple of early chances that we would have used to bury the game but the ball simply refused to enter into the net.

“Once again on behalf of the team I want to apologise to Nigerians and promise them we will make an immediate amend come Wednesday.

“This is the first time I am doing this in my entire career as a player and coach.”
