More than two months after the conclusion of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Coach Gernot Rohr has revealed the player to be blamed for the injury time goal conceded by the Super Eagles in their 2-1 loss to Algeria in the semifinal of the competition.
With almost the last kick of the game, Manchester City Winger, Riyad Mahrez scored a brilliant free-kick to send Algeria through to the final for the first time in 29 years.
According to Rohr, the Super Eagles players did everything in their power to prevent the ball from going in and Henry Onyekuru had to lie down behind the wall.
In an interview published by German newspaper Mannheimer Morgen Rohr absolved the Monaco winger of any blame and pointed an accusing finger at Daniel Akpeyi.
Daniel Akpeyi has not been invited to the Super Eagles since the end of the 2019 AFCON, missing the friendly against Ukraine and is not listed among the 23 players in contention to face Brazil on October 13.
