Fans Show Support After Wells Penalty Is Saved

February 10, 2019

Bermuda’s Nahki Wells has received an outpouring of support from football fans after taking to Twitter to apologise after his penalty was saved in QPR’s recent match against Birmingham.

In describing the penalty, QPR’s website said, “Nahki Wells stepped up to take it, after Luke Freeman was tripped in the box, but former R’s goalkeeper Lee Camp came to the rescue for the visitors – as he dived low to his right to keep out the Burnley loanee.”

Following the match, which saw Birmingham win 4 – 3, Wells tweeted, “Prob the worst feeling I’ve ever had in football!! Apologies I let us down!! Try & right the wrong on Tuesday!!”

The Bermudian footballer has received positive feedback for the tweet, which has over 1,300 ‘likes,’ and over 400 responses, the vast majority of which appear to be supportive.

One of those who tweeted a response was QPR vice-chairman Tony Fernandes who said, “No apologies needed. You have been a star and one of the hardest workers on the pitch. We move on.”

“No need to apologise Nahki, footballers miss penalties and you were a key part in an incredible second half. We are lucky to have you at QPR so keep up the class and skill,” said one person, while another said, “Nothing to apologise for. You’ve been magnificent all season, keep up the great work and you’ll inevitably make amends.”

“You’re a class act Nahki! No need to apologise fella, dust yourself off & keep putting in the effort. You’re a joy to watch,” said another response.

“Chin up mate, you haven’t let us down since you arrived and still haven’t!! Sign for us in the summer and all will be forgiven,” said another response.

“Don’t beat yourself up, you gave everything and as a QPR fan, I appreciate the 100% you give in every game,” tweeted another person, while someone else said, “You didn’t let us down! Played brilliantly in the second half and we wouldn’t have been in the position to equalise without you.”

While the vast majority of responses to his tweet appear to be from QPR fans in England, some of the responses are from Bermudians, tweeting to let the footballer know the island remains proud of all his efforts.
