Former Nigeria international Yakubu Aiyegbeni has kicked against the idea of him apologizing to Nigerians over the sitter he missed during the 2010 FIFA World Cup Group B match against South Korea.
Yakubu missed an open goal which would have put Nigeria ahead in the must-win group game at Durban Stadium on June 22, 2010 in Durban.
Ever since then, Nigerians have held the grudge in their hearts and they still make reference to it on social media.
The former Everton and Portsmouth striker revealed his decision not to apologize in an interactive session called Live with Yak on NationTV.

“I won’t apologise at all. Why should I? I have scored so many goals for Nigeria too. I have sacrificed a lot for the country. Did anyone apologise to me?
“I cannot apologise because it wasn’t a deliberate miss. I seriously wanted to score. But it wasn’t to be. So many have strikers have missed chances too and nobody will apologise so I won’t.”
Yakubu scored 21 goals in 57 appearances for the Super Eagles.
