AFCON 2023: Ekong appeals to Nigerians to support Super Eagles

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has appealed to Nigerians from all walks of life to keep supporting the team as it seeks for all three points against the Elephants of Cote d’ Ivoire on Thursday evening.

The table-topping Elephants will look to book an early Round of 16 ticket by defeating Nigeria at the newly-built Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara in Ebimpe, while three-time champions and podium appearance-leaders Nigeria, joint-second on the group A log, are determined to wrestle all the points and enhance their prospects of a slot in the knockout rounds.

But Ekong said; “We are appealing to Nigerians from all over the world to keep supporting and believing in the team. Our objective is to first reach the knockout rounds and then we push strongly from there.”

“We expect a tough game because the Ivorians are the hosts and they are also top of our group. But we have our aspirations as well and we believe in ourselves,” defender Kenneth Omeruo said on Monday.
