William Troost-Ekong, the vice captain of the Super Eagles, has stated that the team is committed to a strong finish to their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign.
On Sunday (today), the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo will host the last qualifying match between the three-time African champions and Sao Tome and Principe.
Group A leaders with 12 points after five games, Jose Peseiro’s men are guaranteed a spot in Cote d’Ivoire 2023.
William Troost-EKong indicated that the Super Eagles care about pleasing their fans despite the meaninglessness of the game.
At a news conference in Uyo, the team’s vice captain said, “We are taking the game seriously and thinking about the fact that we have already qualified for the World Cup.”
If you’ve seen the boys training, you know they’ve put in their best effort without caring if they made the cut or not.
We’re going to put up our best effort on Sunday so that the spectators will be pleased. Uyo has been a great venue for us since day one. We qualified for the 2018 World Cup and did quite well.
Our goal is to make Nigerians proud, therefore you can count on us to do our best.
