AFCON Qualifiers: Troost-Ekong talks tough after Eagles’ session in Freetown

William Troost-Ekong is optimistic Nigeria’s Super Eagles can claim all three points against Sierra Leone in Freetown today.

Ekong featured for the entire duration when the sides met in Benin City; the game ended in an 8-goal thriller.

It was a game to forget for the Super Eagles who saw their four-goal lead cancelled out following a stunning comeback from Sierra Leone.

However, Ekong has assured Nigerians, in a post-training interview on Monday evening, that the team is hungry and want to qualify for the AFCON finals.
