The Super Eagles of Nigeria are gearing up for a crucial match against Sierra Leone on Sunday, with hopes of securing their spot in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament. The team’s vice-captain, William Troost-Ekong, has emphasized that the key to their success in the upcoming qualifier will be the connection between the football stars in the squad. Troost-Ekong believes that the current Nigerian squad, which includes the likes of Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, and Kelechi Iheanacho, is the best he has seen since he joined the team in 2015.
Despite their disappointing exit from the 2021 AFCON tournament, the Super Eagles are highly motivated to secure a victory against Sierra Leone. The team is determined to close the gap with Guinea-Bissau, who is currently leading Group A in the AFCON qualification table. Troost-Ekong’s return to the squad after an injury is expected to provide a much-needed boost to the team’s defense.
Nigeria has a rich history in African football, having won the Africa Cup of Nations three times. The Super Eagles are considered one of the powerhouses of African football, and their fans are hoping that they will continue their impressive run in the upcoming qualifier. The match against Sierra Leone is a must-win for Nigeria, and the team’s fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of the game on Sunday.
