Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Yakubu Aiyegbeni decided to add more salts to the wound of Nigerians after stating emphatically that he won't tender an apology for the goal he missed against South Korea at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
June 22, 2010, was a bad day for all football fraternities in Nigeria as the former Super Eagles star had a glorious chance to give the West African nation a victory over South Korea in a must-win encounter.
Aiyegbeni had only the goalkeeper of South Korea to beat in the World Cup encounter, but the former Everton man was unable to score which made Nigerians angry.
Since then, references have been made to the miss by Yakubu Aiyegbeni as many Nigerian football lovers are still finding it hard to forget about it.
