The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to face Sierra Leone in a crucial AFCON 2023 qualifier match on Sunday. With Guinea-Bissau currently leading Group A, Nigeria needs to secure a victory to solidify their position and keep their hopes of qualifying for the tournament alive. The team has been training hard in Monrovia, and Watford FC defender, William Troost-Ekong, has expressed his confidence in Nigeria’s determination to secure qualification.
In an exclusive interview with Sporty9ja, the 29-year-old star emphasized the team’s focus on securing three points from the upcoming match. Troost-Ekong also highlighted the team’s motivation to win the AFCON trophy after a decade-long wait, but their immediate priority is to secure a victory against Sierra Leone.
The Super Eagles have been preparing diligently for the match, and Troost-Ekong believes fans can expect a team that is ready to fight for the job. He is confident that Nigeria will make their country proud and repay their coach with a standout performance. The defender also acknowledged Sierra Leone as a good team with much respect, but Nigeria is going there to get all three points.
The Super Eagles have a rich history in African football, having won the AFCON three times in the past. However, the team has not won the tournament since 2013 and is eager to end their drought. With the support of their fans and the determination of their players, Nigeria is poised to secure qualification for AFCON 2023 and make a strong statement in the tournament.
