AFCON 2017: 'Naive' Uganda defender Isinde apologizes for costly error against Ghana
Uganda defender Isaac Isinde has issued a groveling apology to his nation after his costly error gifted Ghana a 1-0 win over the Cranes in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations campaign.
The naive 25-year-old tried to make up for being caught out of position and easily losing the ball by pulling Gyan. The experienced 31-year-old forward fell inside the box after that touch, leaving Botswana referee Joshua Bondo with no choice but to award a penalty.
Andre Ayew stepped up and scored the goal that gave the Black Stars three points which see them topping Group D.
'It hurts to lose a game of football,' he is quoted by Kawowo Sports.
"More so, I feel bad that it's my error that cost the team. I apologise to all Ugandans and fellow players for the mistake."
The East Africans will battle Egypt in their next encounter on Saturday.
